The Fully Mature 2000 Taurino, Notarpanaro

Just a quick note for this evening. We have enjoyed several bottles of the 2004 Taurino, Notarpanaro throughout the last year. When I saw a bottle of the 2000 vintage in Virginia last week I could not resist giving it ago. Not knowing the vintage variations of Notarpanaro I decided to gamble since I feel the 2004 vintage has at least five more years of life left. Well, my recommendation is to save some money through purchasing the more interesting 2004. This bottle of 2000 was just past maturity and should be drunk up…ideally at a less expensive price. Available at Total Wine in Virginia.

2000 Cosimo Taurino, Notarpanaro, Salento, Apulia – $20
Imported by Winebow. This wine is a blend of 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia. The nose was aromatic with leather and roast fruit. In the mouth the red fruit was tart and acidic with flavors of Tang. The fruit became leaner with air and mixed with a touch of balsam, still the wine was mouthfilling. The nose was more interesting than in the mouth but it still provided enough pleasure until empty. ** Now.
