Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce is an utterly impeccable, brilliant wine. Vibrant dark cherries, flowers, and minerals all flow onto the palate with remarkable concentration. The proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove, the Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce delivers incredible richness while retaining tons of clarity, inner perfume and harmony. This is a fabulous effort from Molettieri. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

Wine SpectatorThis dark red shows hints of tar, pine and spice accenting the blackberry, cassis and plum skin fruit, which holds up the grippy tannins on the long, minerally finish. Drink now through 2018.
