Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Made by the late, great Antonio Mastroberardino, this ’98 Taurasi Radici Riserva marries its youthful sour cherries, brambly berries, crackling minerals, and licorice with developing tertiary notes of warm leather, umami, grilled meat and charred earth. Soft, round fruit dances on a mineral-laden frame, and chocolaty, chewy tannins cling to the cheeks as this wine glides across the palate to a lingering, beautifully complex finish. Deriving from vines averaging 30 years of age grown in the mineral-laden, volcanic soiled Montemarano vineyard, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about ten days; the wine ages in a combination of barrique (20% new) and cask for 30 months, followed by at least three years in bottle before release. While this wine is structured for aging, it’s still very accessible--Aglianico lovers won’t want to miss this must-have Mastroberardino bottle!
