Winemaker 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

All Vintages
RP 93
The Wine Advocate

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.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

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.

Mastroberardino
Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery, established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino. Pietro was awarded the professional title of 'Mastro' as testament to his skills in quality winemaking, a tradition that has continued uninterrupted for ten generations and one that still continues today. Located in the town of Altripalda, in the ancient region of Irpinia, this family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of this region: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe. Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the ancient winemaking heritage of Campania.
