Il Cancelliere Nero Ne Taurasi 2012
Il Cancelliere Nero Ne Taurasi
Il Cancelliere Nero Ne Taurasi is Taurasi at its best.
30 days maceration at room temperature.
Aged in old Slavonia oak barrels for 24 months, and at least other 24 months in bottle.
Rich, warm and heady, the Nero Ne has characteristics of dried fruits, plum, and stimulating tannins.
Natural wines are not chemically manipulated to produce a standardised output, which must be preserved at all costs.
Therefore, they reflect their vineyard origins better. Therefore, they can also vary significantly from one vintage to the next. They feel the influence the climate and of the general environmental context.
Certainly, the objective is precisely to obtain the best possible output under varying circumstances, always trying to deliver a wine that reflects the distinctive character of the territory.
Moreover, having very little or no added SO2, natural wines usually evolve in the bottle, especially in the first months or years.
This is a general characteristic of completely natural wines.
Il Cancelliere Taurasi - The Producer
Certainly, Il Cancelliere is a family affair.
Located in the heart of Montemarano, the small 5 hectares of vineyards are run by Claudio Panetta and his wife, whose family owns the property.
Most importantly, Claudio’s father-in-law, Soccorso ‘Il Cancelliere’ Romano tends to the vineyards and his sister-in-law helps manage orders and the cellar.
Furthermore, on the land they only grow Aglianico and use old oak, in the cellar, to intensify the perfumes and aromas of the grapes.
