Underbrush, red fruit, dark spice and a whiff of menthol are some of the aromas that come together on this. The firmly structured elegant palate offers ripe plum, red cherry, licorice and tobacco framed in youthfully austere fine-grained tannins that need time to unwind. Drink 2020–2028.

Black-walnut, blackberry and black-olive aromas follow through to a full body, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Very rich and intense. Give it a year or two to come around still.

The 2012 Taurasi Radici is still in the process of integrating, and the oak notes are heavy-handed at the moment. Under that sweet spice and toast, you definitely get a clear glimpse of the pretty fruit below. Morello cherry and dried blackberry give substance and fiber to the core of this robust red wine. Much of this vintage rides on the oak, however. I'd suggest waiting a couple more years before popping the cork.
