Wine Anthology review:
The Vigna Quattro Confini Taurasi is always made in tiny production numbers, with this 2010 clocking in at only 160 cases made overall! The small production allows the Ferraras to concentrate on quality, which this 2010 delivers in ample measure. It's rich and ripe with notes of tart cherry and almond, yet it possesses a dryness to cut through the fruit and bring in subtle secondary floral tones. A graceful Italian red with complexity to spare.
"The gorgeous 2010 Taurasi Vigna Quattro Confini is a wine that won my attention and my heart. This distinctive expression is born in a high-altitude vineyard (up to 600 meters above sea level) with clay and limestone soils with both east- and west-facing exposures. This is an elegant, cool climate Taurasi that delivers a huge balsam presence in the form of cola, rosemary spring, dried ginger, pomegranate and cherry. The bouquet is ethereal and delicate, with penetrating longevity and persistence. That special aromatic intensity is likely to become more refined and pure as this Taurasi continues its evolution." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
