Ruby red color. A complete bouquet of cherry jam, sweet spices, licorice, coffee and cacao. Balanced in the mouth; spicy minerality and great persistence.
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2008 Serpico (Aglianico) is dark, powerful and intense. Black cherries, tar, asphalt and menthol are some of the nuances that emerge from this vibrant, tightly coiled Serpico. The 2008 will require cellaring, but the wine has a brilliant track record of repaying patience. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (Jun 2011)
In the heart of the Taurasi zone, our centuries-old vines – “patriarchs” of Campanian viticulture – offer timeless emotions. Serpico is the expression of this unique territory.
|Excellent with roasted red meats, the finest poultry, game and aged cheeses.
