Mastroberardino has crafted a remarkable 2009 Taurasi Radici Riserva. The wine reveals dark fiber and concentration with interwoven aromas of toasted nut, spice and hearty dark fruit. Pressed cherry, plum and black currant define the fruity element of the bouquet. The mouthfeel is plush and soft with a contemporary style that flaunts ripe fruit extraction with warming oak and spice. The integration is spot-on and this vintage is almost ready to drink now.

An impressive red, seamless yet substantial in structure, loaded with notes of black currant and blackberry preserves, mineral, smoke and earth. Fragrant anise, tobacco and graphite accents glide on the long, lasting finish. Drink now through 2034. 1,160 cases made.

Inky ruby. Very perfumed aromas of violet, blueberry, black cherry, lavender and cloves on the knockout nose. Then bright, fresh and juicy; rising, polished tannins nicely support the rich yet refined blueberry and flinty black cherry flavors. Finishes long with hints of botanical herbs and licorice. Gorgeous Taurasi Riserva.

Pipe tobacco, spiced plum, underbrush, vanilla, new leather and balsamic aromas jump out of the glass while the juicy delicious palate doles out fleshy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and ground pepper. Firm, velvety and enveloping tannins provide smooth polished support. Drink through 2029.
