Winemaker Notes

Ruby red color with garnet reflections. The nose is pronounced and complex with notes of cherry, wild berries, spicy scents of violet and tobacco with a mineral accent. In the mouth it is elegant, smooth, velvety and intense with characteristic hints of plums, black cherries, black pepper and tar; full-bodied and austere with balanced tannins and acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

A brooding, yet well-aged Taurasi with lots of bark, Chinese herbal medicine and black mushrooms to the dried blackberries, tar and savory cocoa powder. The complete dryness of the sweet fruit, plus the firm, dusty tannins complement the complex palate. Lots of earthy, dark mushroom notes chime in at the finish, leaving a lingering, savory yet elegant aftertaste. Nothing plush nor opulent, but rather mature, traditional and reserved.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is an interesting wine that defies the low expectations of this challenging vintage to deliver plenty of unexpected richness and dark fruit. The 2014 Taurasi Fatica Contadina is more concentrated and intense than I would have anticipated, showing deep layers of dark cherry and blackberry. Those aromas are quite smooth. However, the wine takes a different turn on the palate, where it shows some bitterness and textural grittiness that comes with age. I like the nose of this vintage but am less enthusiastic about the mouthfeel.

Terredora di Paolo Winery Image
"From a rich and ancient tradition, the passion that animates the present" Terredora Di Paolo is a continuation of the ancient story of Campania, its people and their passion for their land and their winemaking. For us the land is central to our family. It represents our soul and the driving force behind the winery, which is why, year after year, we consider the harvest our greatest treasure. TERREDORA DI PAOLO has been on the forefront of the wine renaissance in Campania since 1978. This is a region that was famous for producing the best wines of the Roman Empire and Terredora Di Paolo is committed to re-establishing it to its former glory. They have been instrumental in reintroducing ancient grape varieties, promoting modern innovation and training the men and women who will be responsible for carrying their vision into the future. Today, with more than 120 hectares of vineyard land, Terredora Di Paolo is Campania’s largest wine producer and vineyard owner, with a worldwide reputation for the quality of its wines. Their commitment to excellence was proven in 1994 when they decided to vinify their own grapes. This decision was prompted by their belief that great wine comes from the balance of natural resources: terrain, varieties used, climate and man’s ability to work with nature.

Italian Red Wine

While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
