Natalie's Score: 90/100
Full-bodied with lots of acidity; this robust Italian red wine is made from 100% Aglianico grapes from the region of Paternopoli. The vines are planted at 600 metres above sea level. Aromas of dark red, tart fruit and smoke and spice. Pair with hearty meat dishes.
Food pairings: rib steak, pork roast, garlic studded roast chicken.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

|John Masur WSET 3, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
In Campania, The Taurasi region is where you'll find the Aglianico grape at the height of it's expression. This Nativ wine has a wonderful floral essence that hides the power of the dried blackberry flavours lurking beneath. Aglianico is known to blend well with oak, and this is no exception as you get hints of vanilla, and spice to round out its full body and fine grained tannins. A modern style of wine, this will pair well with hard cheeses, olives, pizza, red sauce pasta, and charcuterie, as the acidity and fruits hold up well against salty and fatty dishes.

Plum, smoke, spice and everything nice! A lovely, moderate to full-bodied Italian red crafted from Aglianico grapes in the Southern Italian region of Taurasi, Campagnia. Enjoy with smoked brisket. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Heavily oaked with rich powerful very ripe plummy nose. Fully dry with a pop of alcohol late. Somewhat reminicent of Primitivo (aka Zin).
|Nativ's (2011) Taurasi from the Campania wine region is dark garnet in the glass with lush, ripe dark fruit and intensity wrapped up with anise cake spice, vanilla and cedar brush. Drink now and for the next three years. Incredible with a roast leg of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews|
