What a wine and what a great opportunity! The Taurasi from Campania is considered the southern Italian counterpart to Barolo and Brunello in terms of elegance, fullness and balance. When a Taurasi is made by master craftsmen in a legendary traditional winery, you can be prepared for a particularly magnificent sip.
Or three bottles of such a showpiece, as in the case of this vintage vertical of the Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine. The highly awarded vintages 2009, 2013 and 2015 come here in a stylish wooden box and allow a fascinating insight into the nuances of expression of the different vintages.
The dry, elegant single-vineyard wine is characterized by fruity and balsamic notes. Aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries are flanked by delicate spicy notes. Harmonious, soft and captivating with round tannins and a fine mineral freshness, the wine enchants until the persistent finale.

Monica Larner, who is responsible for Italy at Robert Parker's Wine Advocate magazine, is consistently impressed by the character and expression of this Taurasi and regularly awards high marks. She has this to say about the three vintages:
2015 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine - 96 Parker Points
"This wine was not produced in the 2014 vintage. The excellent 2015 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine amply makes up for that gap thanks to its generous purple and black fruit. This is a terrific vintage with ample spice and smoke. This wine shows extra volume in the mouth, making a great impact."
2013 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine - 96 Parker Points
"From a celebrated single vineyard recognized around the world, the 2013 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine shows beautifully in this vintage. This is a complete and generous expression of Aglianico with thick layering and full-bodied appeal. Fruit thrives at 700 meters above sea level, where nighttime diurnal shifts make a big impact on the quality and brightness of the aromas, especially in a balanced and slightly cool vintage such as this. Taurasi renders rich aromas of black fruit, spice and balsam herb. You get all of those here with abundance. This wine should hold a steady aging course for the next 20 years."
2009 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine - 94 Parker Points
"The impressive 2009 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine comes from a two-hectare single-vineyard site with 30-year-old vines. The wine ages in barrique and botti for up to 24 months. The style displayed is thick and penetrating with beautifully contrasting themes of dark fruit and spice. Blackberry and Morello cherry are enhanced by cinnamon and dark chocolate. That plush, international style that Feudi di San Gregorio has so effectively perfected is on proud display in this gorgeous wine."
