    Winemaker's Notes:

    This ruby red wine has a full, intense and complex bouquet consisting of violet and berries. Enveloping the mouth, it has persistent and elegant notes of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam and black pepper. Radici Taurasi pairs well with roasted meats, larger game, spiced dishes or truffle and mature cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ruby-red. Perfumed, complex nose is crammed with ripe red cherry, herbs and sweet spices. A noticeable step up in precision and intensity from the basic aglianico bottling, this is supple and full, with impressive mid-palate breadth. Shows increasing sweetness of red fruit flavor with aeration, with mint, dried tomato and subtle tobacco notes adding complexity and extending through the taut, long finish, which features very classy tannins. This should be even better for a few years of patience, but it's pretty irresistible already. Looking back at 20 years' worth of tasting young Mastroberardino Taurasis at a similar stage of development, this is without question one of the best.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2004 Taurasi Radici is a rich, concentrated red loaded with tons of dark fruit, menthol, game and spices in a deceptively medium-bodied style. The dry extract numbers are literally off the charts at 39 grams/liter, yet this silky, sensual wine is drinking beautifully, even at this early stage. Pretty, sweet medicinal notes linger on the long finish. The Taurasi Radici is aged in a combination of small and large casks. This is one of the most elegant wines I can remember tasting from Mastroberardino in some time. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

    The Wine Advocate

    This excellent vintage of the celebrated Taurasi Radici selection delivers an impeccable presentation of spice, black fruit and mineral that is incredibly smooth and well-integrated. There are no sharp points here and the wine offers sweet cherry flavors and great purity of fruit.
