Critical Acclaim

"The 2003 Taurasi Radici Riserva is a fascinating wine. Initially rather firm, the 2003 softens up beautifully with some time in the glass. To be sure, the incisive 2003 tannins never completely melt away, but there is more than enough fruit to provide balance. This is a fairly dark, brooding Radici Riserva endowed with tons of depth and an imposing personality. Still vibrant and youthful, the 2003 should find its balance and elegance with further bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2033. "
94 Points

"Give this wine a few minutes to evolve in the glass. It is a beautiful expression of Taurasi that does a very faithful job of exploring the depths and horizons of aged Aglianico. It emits elegant aromas of resin, dried berries, cassis, tobacco, rum cake, cola and crushed stone. The tannins are firm but also show a softer, silkier side which makes the wine approachable now."
