La Loggia del Cavaliere 2013 - Tenuta Cavalier Pepe

This is a Red wine made with the Aglianico grape. It belongs to the Taurasi DOCG appellation in Irpinia. It’s produced by Cavalier Pepe; it is the producer’s Grand Cru. We visited this winery multiple times. The color is dark ruby, it’s clear and filtered. It has a high viscosity (14.5% abv). The core is not true to the rim , clearly showing bottle aging. The nose is just spectacular with notes of dark fruits, blackberry, tobacco and cedar wood. The palate confirms the nose with a perfect balance of soft tannins, acidity and very very long persistence. The wine is absolutely marvelous. It invites to have more ... it’s a meditation wine .. it can be paired with any heavy dish prepared with meat or simply with pasta dish in a meat sauce or ragù proper from the Irpinia region.
