The 2016 Taurasi Radici is an elegant feminine beauty that’s geared for many years of development in the cellar showing an alluring dark and earthy expression up front which blossoms into a display of citrus-tinged blackberries rosy florals and a hint of animal musk. It coats the palate in silky richness ushering in polished black fruits offset by cooling herbal and mineral tones as round tannins slowly emerge. The finish is long youthfully poised and structured staining the senses in dark fruits along with hints of spiced citrus and crushed violets. What a gorgeous Taurasi this is and it will only improve with cellaring. (Drink between 2026-2040)


Wine Advocate: 94+ Points

This wine paints an authentic portrait of the Aglianico grape made according to family-honored traditions in the province of Avellino. The Mastroberardino 2016 Taurasi Radici reveals a unique combination of tart cherry fruit savory smoke and campfire ash. You also get some candied orange peel tilled earth and rusty nail. This vintage represents one of the most complete and balanced editions of the Taurasi Radici program that I have tasted in 20 years and I look forward to tracking its bottle evolu
