TAURASI TASTING INTRODUCTION:
The origins of Taurasi date back to the pre-Roman age.
Aglianico , the grape from which Taurasi is produced , was defined as "hellenico", that is of Greek origin. Taurasi wine subsequently took its name from "Taurasia", a small wine village which the Romans took possession of after defeating the Irpinia people in 80 AD. In this area, the Romans then transferred thousands of Ligurian settlers to work the vines
Taurasi is a wine produced by Agricola Bellaria, whose CEO recently visited Season's Harvest, in the countryside of Paternopoli, in the province of Avellino, one of the few areas authorized for the cultivation of Aglianico, the vine from which Taurasi is produced.
Through compliance with rigorous processing standards dictated by the production regulations and after a four-year journey, the Aglianico grapes fully acquire the characteristics of Taurasi .
It is a special certifying body that verifies the origin, characteristics and processing to attribute the DOCG denomination
The uniqueness of Taurasi is linked to the coexistence of a perfect mix of factors such as the land, the climate and the lush vineyards of the Irpinia hills, all located between 500 and 600 meters high.
The wine production of Taurasi does not exceed 100 quintals per hectare and the maximum yield of grapes into wine cannot exceed 60% per hectare.
The refinement of Taurasi in wooden barrels takes place over 12 months. The wine undergoes a series of organoleptic processes in order to acquire the characteristics and flavor that distinguish it. Furthermore , Taurasi is subjected to “molecular maceration”, a process which consists in the contact between the juice and the skins for a day under controlled conditions.
