I Capitani Bosco Faiano 2013
|Region||Italy, Campania, Taurasi|
The 2013 Taurasi Bosco Faiano is very nice; soft and contoured and round. The aromas are open and immediate with lots of soft and luscious fruit and good depth. You also get spice, leather, and tobacco notes. The wines' overall feel is more international or contemporary with plenty of softness and succulence on the close.
Good deep red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, chocolate-covered cherries, forest floor, coffee and hazelnuts. Sweet, dense and fresh on the palate, boasting clean, fine-grained red fruit and soil flavors. Finishes with outstanding length and an easy-to-drink quality. This was by far the best wine I tasted from I Capitani this year. Well done.
Violet, wild berry, clove and a whiff of leather form the nose. On the firm palate, bright acidity and taut fine-grained tannins accompany red cherry, vanilla and star anise before a coffee finish. Drink 2021-3030.
