Taurasi DOCG en

The Taurasi D.O.C.G. of Cantina Contrada is an imposing, penetrating and strong wine, and is exclusively produced in its place of origin. An amaranth wine, with a garnet red shade, the Taurasi Contrada explodes in a symphony of aromatic notes: cherry and soft fruits, mixed with the typical smells of piquant, tobacco and plum.
With a captivating taste and a hint of tannins, it is a structured wine that shows in its flavour and smell the fascination of its long stay in Slavonian oak barrels.
