In the heart of the Irpino area, in the province of Avellino, is one of the greatest enological expressions of southern Italy, Taurasi. Defined as the Barolo of the South for its extraordinary class and ageing capacity, it is a full-bodied, austere, round and persistent red wine, and one of the greatest and most famous interpretations of Campania's Aglianico grape variety. The regulations for Taurasi DOCG, established in 1993, require an ageing period of at least 3 years, of which 12 months in wood, which increases to 4 years, with 18 months in wood, for the Riserva type. Its name originates from the ancient town of Taurasia, a small village that was destroyed by the Romans during the bloody wars against the Irpini. In short, this legendary liquid with pre-Romanesque origins embodies a piece of the history and culture of the Campania region in every sip.
