The 1958 Taurasi is a blockbuster. Utterly mind-blowing in its depth and purity, the 1958 stakes its claim as one of the greatest wines ever made in Italy. Dark fruit, licorice, leather and menthol dance on the palate, leading to an intense, powerful wine. At this stage it appears quite likely that the 1958 will reach its 100th birthday. Today it is nothing short of breathtaking. Hints of dark fruits, menthol, leather and licorice add complexity to the finish.
