    Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi 2017, expertly crafted by winemaker Massimo Di Renzo, stands as a true representation of the Aglianico vine’s excellence from the Taurasi region. This wine encapsulates the history and culture of Irpinia viticulture, maintaining the energetic personality and full-bodied structure that have garnered acclaim worldwide.

    Sourced from the Montemarano and Mirabella Eclano vineyards, with an average altitude of 450 meters above sea level, the Aglianico grapes enjoy south-east and south-west exposures, respectively. The 20-year-old vines, trained in espalier with spurred cordon pruning, yield approximately 1.3 kg per vine, reflecting a commitment to quality over quantity.

    The vinification process involves classic red wine techniques, with a long maceration period and controlled temperature fermentation. The Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi 2017 matures in French oak barriques and Slavonian oak barrels for about 24 months, followed by at least 24 months in the bottle, enhancing its depth and complexity.

    In the glass, the wine displays an intense ruby red color. Its scent is broad, complex, and intense, with rich hints of cherry, violet, small red fruits, and a distinctive spicy aroma. On the palate, the Radici Taurasi Mastroberardino is enveloping and elegant. It reveals flavors of plum, black cherry, strawberries, and intense spicy sensations, all balanced beautifully with the wine’s structure.

    Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi pairs exceptionally well with mature cheeses, truffles, porcini mushrooms, rich ragouts, and roasted red meats. It’s a wine that shows a remarkable capacity for aging, with the potential to develop and mature for over 50 years.

    Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi 2017 has received high praise from wine critics. Wine Spectator awarded it 92 points, noting ripe fruit and medicinal herbs on the nose, a palate of black raspberry and cassis, and a finish echoing its fruit, herb, and mineral character. James Suckling gave it 93 points, highlighting its complexity and intense, steely fruit and mineral flavors. Vinous rated it 94 points, praising its depth, density, and perfect contrast of black fruits and brisk acids.

    These acclaims reiterate that Mastroberardino Taurasi Radici 2017 is a wine of exceptional quality. The Mastroberardino winery’s commitment to excellence is evident in every bottle of Radici Taurasi. As a hallmark of Mastroberardino wines, the Radici Taurasi Mastroberardino 2017 is not just a wine; it’s a reflection of the winery’s deep-rooted tradition in creating profound and memorable wines.

    Critical Acclaim

    WS 92
    Wine Spectator
    Reveals ripe fruit and medicinal herbs on the nose that continue on the palate, with crushed black raspberry and cassis, Earl Grey tea leaf and hints of mocha and tar-tinged smoke. Fresh and well-knit, with chalky, sculpted tannins and a finish that echoes the fruit, herb and mineral character. Drink now through 2030.
    JS 93
    James Suckling
    Complex already on the nose with blue and black fruit, as well as notes of nori, goudrons and spices, such as cinnamon and mace. Full-bodied with intense, almost steely fruit and mineral flavors and firm, medium-grain tannins. The quality is evident here. It’s just a bit rough at the moment and needs a couple of years to calm down and expand in all directions. Try from 2023.
    VIN 94
    Vinous
    The 2017 Taurasi Radici is a force to be reckoned with, as it bursts from the glass with masses of raspberries, currants and plums, complemented by an array of autumnal spices and crushed violets. Its textural depth and density is something to behold, silky, almost creamy, yet contrasted perfectly by a core of mineral-laced black fruits and brisk acids, as an air of inner rose and cloves forms toward the close. The 2017 is persistent and structured yet also unbelievably fresh, as fine tannins frame its smoky mineral tones, along with lasting hints of blackberry and olive. This is a gorgeous rendition of Radici that should provide readers with a slightly earlier drinking window than normally expected. That said, we are talking in terms of Taurasi here, and this wine has a very bright future ahead of it.
