Caggiano Vigna Macchia dei Gotti Taurasi 2013 - Feb 2018 Decanter review
The Caggiano winery is based in the town of Taurasi, the heartland of Aglianico, which is the main focus of their production (they were the first ones to produce a Taurasi cru, aged Bordeaux-style exclusively in barriques in 1994). Antonio Caggiano, the founder of the winery, designed one of the wineries, the most spectacular in Campania in 1990. Today thousands of bottles are laid down in its galleries made of the local “tufo” stone waiting for the sturdy Aglianico to be ready to drink.
Fermentation is temperature-controlled, in stainless steel. The wine is fined in barriques for 12-18 months (varies friom harvest to harvest).
This is an intense and complex wine with aromas of red berry fruits on the nose and hints of vanilla and licorice appear on the palate along with wild strawberries and cranberries.
