Of course the nuances are different, as are different interpretations of the producers, but this variety keeps a fil rouge that saves the identity.
If in the area of the Taurasi is expressed with bold colors, sometimes a bit rough, with spicy notes of tobacco and dried flowers, and in that of the Taburno, it keeps it more fruity with aromas and flavors that evoke blackberry and black currant, in the Vulture, depending on the elevation of cultivation, is expressed with some tone floral,cherry and tobacco but with a taste balance is relatively more immediate.

The structure is elegant, proper, with dense tannins and sweet. The final then is everything to enjoy in its enviable persistence.
