"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." -Wine Enthusiast *(93 Points)*

Decent but needs to be aged to mellow out some flavors and let it blend. Dark, fruity and moist with cherry and oak flashes to pepper on my tongue and wet smoke in my mouth. Shows potential. The variety of grape is very unique though, it has the berry flavor that Cabernet sauvignon is missing with the same sort of distinct changes in texture and after taste.

Dark purple in the glass, dark and heavy. On the nose the wine is all Taurasi with licorice, cherries and meat on the nose, a smoky barbeque style wine infact. On the palate the wine is full bodied and smooth and the fills every inch of your mouth, a real palate coating wine. Good length on the finish I suspect a few more years will do it some favours

The nose showed beautifully with ripe strawberry and potpourri, yet as the wine sat in the glass it turned darker and fuller with notes candle wax, earth, mushrooms and moist fall leaves. On the palate, this wine was eloquent and soft at first but turned more tannic into the finish. The senses were wrapped with penetrating black fruit, followed by minerals and a taste of older wood, which gave it a bit of a rustic feel. The finish was laden with intense cranberry fruit, giving it a really nice sendoff. This wine is just starting to show its age, yet still has many more years to go before its structure truly softens.

Delicate Italia. While many Italian reds can be giants. Big and bold and take 20 yrs t show well. This is one of the more delicate Italian reds I have had. Scents of currants, black rasberry, black pepper, and briny oceanic air minerals. Favors of black currants that layer to a sharp dry earthen flavor then go back to rasberry and then saline basalt of the sea. This wine i more delicate than some may think though. Served with heavy meats it would be overwhelmed and the layers would not show through. Its long bodied and well showing right now. Try with Pork, cedar grilled fish, seared tuna and the like.

Nearing the end of its life, but still full of satisfying secondary flavors: leather, pepper, earth, and mushroom, all wrapped up in a wonderfully silky core, with enough residual acidity to still stand up nicely to hearty cuisine. We bought a case of this and have enjoyed every bottle.

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, terroir-driven aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, licorice, iron, woodsmoke and minerals. At once dense and suave, with herbal and peppery nuances complicating the wines aromatic flavors of red cherry, plum, tobacco and f... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Rubinrot; herrliche Düfte nach Pflaumen, Himbeeren, Kirschen und gebrannten Mandeln. Muskulöser Körper mit Kraft und präsenten Tanninen, welche nach einer gewissen Reifezeit das ganze Potenzial und die Finesse dieses Prachtsweines zeigen. Sein robustes Gerüst prädestiniert ihn für eine lange Lagerung.

From Mastroberardino, masters of Taurasi who can be credited with its rediscover and elevation to world class status, this single vineyard wine is one of the finest examples you'll ever taste.Often refered to as "Barolo of the South" because of it's similar density, depth and ageablity. This 2005 scored 92 point in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "This is one of our favorite red wines from Southern Italy. The reason is personality: you just don’t find this intensity and these lead pencil mineral notes and crushed black pepper anywhere else. The wine is elegant and focused with young tannins that promise a long aging future ahead." Limited!

WA: 93 - WE: 92-According to the Wine Advocate: "Mastroberardino's 2005 Taurasi Radici impresses for its superb elegance and graceful personality. Finessed, silky tannins frame notes of dark red fruits intermingled with scents of bacon fat, new leather and spices. Impeccable through and through, the 2005 Taurasi is surprisingly open at this stage and looks to be a relatively early drinking wine within the context of Taurasi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.
