Antonio Caggiano Taurasi Macchia dei Goti 2008

Antonio Caggiano Taurasi Macchia dei Goti 2008In the New York Times, Eric Asimov hosts a tasting panel which tries wines “from the bottom of Italy’s boot”. He wrote: “We were all impressed by the consistently high quality of these wines. Some, as the range of vintages suggested, were more immediately approachable, while others will continue to benefit from aeging. We found big differences in texture and density, but most of the wines were distinctively structured and earthy, with flavours of red fruit, liquorice and menthol.”

In regards to this wine he wrote: “Our number one wine was the 2008 Macchia dei Goti Taurasi from Antonio Caggiano, beautifully balanced and lovely to drink right now but with the potential to age.”

He added: “Balanced and lovely, structured yet approachable, with savoury flavours that linger.”
