“Riserva Della Società” (“Company Reserve”) is a bold, singular Taurasi of remarkable presence and depth, one which Raffaele only bottles in the best vintages, ageing the wine for a period more than double the appellation requirements—at least three years in previously used oak and acacia casks, plus an additional four or more years in bottle before release. It is rife with earth-derived aromas and flavors, evoking damp woods, cool herbs, and wild fruit, and manages to remain nimble despite a fearsome density.These remarkable Aglianico vines have spent between 150 and 200 years developing their root systems, disrupted neither by phlloxera nor by tilling. The resulting wine, though new to the RWM portfolio, is nearly certain to become one of our most iconic.
