Reviews

Wine Spectator - Feb 2008 - Antonio Galloni - 92 points

The 2004 Serpico (Aglianico) is rich, dense and sweet in its expression of dark fruit, licorice, anise and toasted oak. Although it is a powerful, intense wine, it also presents a slightly more advanced quality than the 2004 Taurasi, which I preferred for its greater complexity and balance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
