Winemaker's Notes:

Classification Taurasi Riserva Docg Grape Variety Aglianico 100% Type of soil Chalky clay Training system Guyot Period of harvest Late October Yield per hectare 7000 Kg Aging in oak About thirty months in 40 hl oak barrels and barriques Bottle refining At least 18 months Alcohol content 13,5% Colour Intense ruby red Bouquet Full, complex, intense bouquet redolent of tobacco, cherry, violet and berries Palate In the mouth it is enveloping, elegant, and persistent. The background has distinct notes of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam, black pepper Serving temperature 18°C Food affinities A fine accompaniment to roast meats and larger game (deer, wild boar, etc.), spiced dishes or truffle, and mature cheese Notes In the two thousand year history of the Aglianico grape, Taurasi, the wine of the ‘vigne opime’ of old Taurasia mentioned by Livy, has a special place. This wine has seen an astonishing series of vintages which have charmed with their style and personality. Radici, which was produced for the first time in 1986, is the result of painstaking research into exposure, chemical and physical characteristics of terroir, and topography. Its strong personality, dense structure, and aromatic concentration are the primary features of this prestigious symbol of Irpinian viticulture
