Taurasi Riserva, Perillo - 2010

Item # 36429 750mL

The Perillo estate only releases Riserva level wines, believing that the wine needs extra time aging before it is ready to drink. This older vintage is showing sanguine, blood orange fruit flavors and grippy tannins. An excellent match for osso bucco and wild boar.
