95pts Wine Spectator 

A deep, plush, full-bodied red, with dense tannins that are well-meshed to flavors of black cherry pâte de fruit, olive paste, cured tobacco, spice box, iron and graphite. Big and brooding, this nonetheless maintains a sense of elegance throughout. Best from 2022 through 2032. 1,000 cases made, 100 cases imported.  Highly Recommended.

94pts James Suckling

A very meaty, spicy Taurasi with cedary and tarry accents, highlighting more fruit-driven elements of blackberries and dark cherries. It’s really deep and dense, but remarkably polished and agile for a wine of 15% alcohol and nearly 7 years of age. There’s tension and beauty here, not simply raw power and opulence.

Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media

"Molettieri is one of the most fascinating young producers to come out of Campania [and] one of my favorite[s]."

Winemaker Notes

Dark and intense ruby red. Intense and complex nose, spicy notes of pepper and nutmeg, elegant balsamic nuances that mingle with ripe prune, licorice and coffee notes. The palate is warm and opulent, but also extremely fresh and sapid, with tightly knit tannins. Long finish of ripe fruit and toasted coffee.
