Intense flavour in the nose of mushrooms, both dry and wet. Mixed up with small portions of raw meat, liqourice, coffee and some cherry. Occasionally you will find almonds and flowers.
Having a sip of this Taurasi you will have quite invasive and intense impressions, a relative full-bodied (consistent) wine with black pepper, liqourice, almonds, mint, and some salt at the end (especially if you have had pasta with mushrooms). It's persistent with the flavours, and relative complex and structured. This Taurasi is quite dry and has a lot of tannins at the end, which stays and lasts for a long time. A quite tannic, harmonius and mature wine.
An observation I had was that the wine was limpid for the eyes, but only quite limpid for the mouth, as like some invisible sediments still would be in the wine. But maybe it's only the character of Aglianico from 2003? A very warm and dry summer, which created very concentrated wines.
A balanced fine wine like Di Priscos Taurasi you could very well combine with pasta and mushrooms, red meat, wild meat, seasoned cheese, truffle, and some dark chocolate to let your thoughts fly a long way.
