2011 Terre del Principe Terre del Volturno Casavecchia Centomoggia
RATING: 91 points

Beautiful in concept and execution, the 2011 Terre del Volturno Casavecchia Centomoggia opens to densely
extracted concentration and compelling aromas of dark fruit, pressed cherries, tar licorice, dark smoke
and wild porcini mushroom. The wine flaunts a personality that is powerful, rustic and cheerful. It does a great job of capturing the rugged but beautiful scenery that characterizes the Castel Campagnano area where the vineyards are located. Fruit is harvested from two sites with 30-year-old and 120-year-old plants respectively. The wine sees 30% new oak.
