  4. Naturalis Historia Taurasi DOCG

Named after Pliny the Elder’s historical tome, Naturalis Historia is sourced from a single vineyard, Mirabella Eclano, which is known for its high quality potential from old vines—up to forty years old. Very structured and long-lived, this wine is considered the flagship of this ancient volcanic Irpinian terroir.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-red in color, seductive aromas of violets and black fruits complement undertones of berries and chocolate. On the palate, it is flavorful, full-bodied, and velvety with a long, evolving finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted beef, Mornay sauces, farsumagru, and Chateaubriand.
