"Fresh and focused, this elegant, medium- to full-bodied version features plush tannins married to ripe cherry and raspberry fruit. A subtle underpinning of loamy earth and an aromatic skein of saffron and spice unravels on the long finish. Drink now through 2029. 5,830 cases made, 900 cases imported. -AN" (WS)

"The Mastroberardino 2015 Taurasi Radici is a dark and savory wine with thickly stacked aromas of black fruit, tar, licorice and campfire ash. This is a baritone Taurasi from a warm and sunny vintage that boasts concentrated and rich flavors as a result. Despite the evident power you get here, Taurasi has a beautiful manner of staying focused and sharp nonetheless. This wine demonstrates that quality very nicely." (WA)

"Fully saturated ruby. Aromas of woodsy underbrush and red cherry, plus a dusting of crushed stones and red flowers. Refined and perfectly balanced on the palate, conveying a seamless quality to the dark and red fruit flavors. Finishes very pure and long with mineral accents. Lovely." (VM)

"I love the spicy and lifted notes here of caramelized orange peel, dried meat, blackcurrants, pomegranate, sea urchin and bark. A seamless and wonderfully elegant, medium-bodied palate follows with finely grained tannins and loads of floral undertones. This wine is all about transparency and subtlety. Best Radici in years. Drink now." (JS)
