"Black cherries, licorice, incense, tobacco, spices burst from the glass in the 2006 Taurasi Riserva Vigna 5 Querce. Today, the 2006 is huge, imposing and virtually impenetrable, but with time in the glass the wine shows considerable depth and sheer richness. This is one of the more overt, textured Taurasis readers will come across. All the elements are in perfect balance and symmetry. Game, mocha, expresso, melted road tar and cloves are some of the many notes that are woven into the enveloping finish. This is one of the most polished wines I have tasted from Molettieri. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce is an utterly impeccable, brilliant wine. Vibrant dark cherries, flowers, and minerals all flow onto the palate with remarkable concentration. The proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove, the Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce delivers incredible richness while retaining tons of clarity, inner perfume and harmony. This is a fabulous effort from Molettieri. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

Wine SpectatorThis dark red shows hints of tar, pine and spice accenting the blackberry, cassis and plum skin fruit, which holds up the grippy tannins on the long, minerally finish. Drink now through 2018.
