    Winemaker's Notes:

    This ruby-red wine has a full, complex spectrum of aromas, particularly of violet and blackberries. On the palate, it is full-bodied and mouth-filling, with persistent and elegant notes of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam and black pepper. Radici Taurasi pairs flawlessly with roasted meats, larger game, spicy Middle Eastern dishes, truffles and aged, flavorful cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Mastroberardino's 2005 Taurasi Radici impresses for its superb elegance and graceful personality. Finessed, silky tannins frame notes of dark red fruits intermingled with scents of bacon fat, new leather and spices. Impeccable through and through, the 2005 Taurasi is surprisingly open at this stage and looks to be a relatively early drinking wine within the context of Taurasi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is one of our favorite red wines from Southern Italy. The reason is personality: you just don't find this intensity and these lead pencil mineral notes and crushed black pepper anywhere else. The wine is elegant and focused with young tannins that promise a long aging future ahead.
