    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red in color. Full, complex, intense and redolent of violet and berries. Elegant and persistent with flavors of black pepper, strawberry jam and plum.

    Pairs well with roasted meats, spiced dishes and truffle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Taurasi Radici hits the palate with masses of blueberries, black berries, flowers and spices. The 2006 is a big, explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said, it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic, concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046.

    Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, terroir-driven aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, licorice, iron, woodsmoke and minerals. At once dense and suave, with herbal and peppery nuances complicating the wine's aromatic flavors of red cherry, plum, tobacco and flinty minerals. Finishes with building tannins and a juicy freshness.

    International Wine Cellar

    The spicy scent of freshly grated nutmeg and the nuances of leather, iron and rich blue fruit all contribute depths of this wine. It's bloody and black in flavor, with a vibrant finish that suggests there's more to be revealed with age.

    Christian V. (4/26/2012)
    Found this wine purely by luck. It was mixed in with the barolo and other wines from Tuscany and Piedmonte. This wine is patently southern and largely overlooked. This wine is in it for the long haul. This vintage, being only 6 years old, is very young. Its tannins and legs at this age speak more like a wine twice its age; clearly an indicator of its quality. Its appearance is ruby red with garnet. Its nose brings hints of oak, plum and spice that fade into rich and earthy tobacco. The pallet has an excellent tannins that, despite its youth, do not hinder the flavor. The spice and deep, ripe fruit push through the tannins beautifully as the oak and tobacco flavors take over. Its long lasting finish recounts the well balanced flavors very nicely. Even though this vintage is very drinkable now, I would suggest investing in a couple of cases for the cellar. This vintage will be untouchable in 7 to 10 years. 94 pts.
