Cosimo Taurino Notarpanaro 2011
Cosimo Taurino offers a good collection of value wines among its newest releases. The 2011 Negroamaro Notarpanaro (aged in wood for up to eight months) is one solid example. This Negroamaro opens to dark, jammy fruit with black plum and dried blackberry piled high at the front. Oak-driven tones of spice and cinnamon are presented with equal intensity. This is a warm vintage and it shows.
