    Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi Riserva 2015, crafted by renowned winemaker Massimo Di Renzo, is a testament to the Mastroberardino family’s legacy in Italian winemaking. This Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi Riserva wine, embodying the essence of Irpinian viticulture, is produced from 100% Aglianico grapes, meticulously grown in the upper part of the Montemarano vineyard. The vineyard’s southeast exposure and clayey-limestone soil, enriched with a strong presence of skeleton, sit at an elevation of approximately 550 meters above sea level. The 20-year-old vines, trained in espalier with spurred cordon pruning, yield about 1.3 kg per vine.

    The Radici Taurasi Mastroberardino undergoes classic red vinification with an extended maceration of about 25 days at controlled temperatures. It matures for approximately 30 months in a mix of French oak barriques and Slavonian oak barrels, followed by at least 40 months of bottle aging. This meticulous process contributes to the wine’s profound complexity and structure.

    Visually, the Radici Taurasi Riserva 2015 presents an intense ruby red color. Its aroma is broad, complex, and refined, offering an intricate bouquet of tobacco, spices, cherry, berries, plum, and balsamic notes. On the palate, it envelops the senses with elegance. Flavors of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam, black pepper, and licorice beautifully unfold in the mouth. This Mastroberardino wine pairs exceptionally well with mature cheeses, truffles, porcini mushrooms, sausages, meaty ragouts, and spicy dishes.

    The Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi Riserva has an impressive aging potential, gracefully maturing for 60 years or more. It’s best served at a temperature of 18°C to fully appreciate its nuances.

    The Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi Riserva 2015 has garnered significant acclaim. James Suckling awarded it 96 points, highlighting its elegance, tension, and the need for patience to allow the tannins to soften. Vinous also gave it 96 points, praising its deeply seductive bouquet and silken textures. Decanter rated it 94 points, noting its powerful structure ideal for aging. Wine Spectator bestowed another 94 points, commending its layered complexity and fine-grained tannins.

    The Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi Riserva is a shining example of the Mastroberardino family’s dedication to quality and their skill in producing exceptional wines. This Mastroberardino Taurasi Riserva, a flagship of the Mastroberardino Taurasi riserva wine portfolio, represents the pinnacle of their craft. The Radici Taurasi Riserva, and indeed all Radici wines, encapsulate the unique terroir of the Taurasi region, making Mastroberardino a benchmark for excellence in the world of Italian wines.

    Critical Acclaim

    WS 94
    Wine Spectator
    A tightly knit and concentrated red, with firm yet creamy tannins supporting a layered range of creamed black cherry, raspberry coulis and chocolate pudding, plus details of iron and graphite, spice box and tobacco. Fresh and supple on the palate, with fine-grained tannins framing the finish. Best from 2025 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
    DEC 94
    Decanter
    First produced in 1986, Radici Taurasi is sourced from the upper part of the Montemarano vineyard at around 550 metres. A long maceration on the skins is followed by maturation for around 30 months in Slavonian oak barrels and French oak barriques, then a further 40+ months in bottle. More focused, concentrated and intense than Stilema Taurasi 2015, it has a powerful structure for ageing. Bloody and juicy, it reveals concentrated red and black berries on a grippy palate.
    JS 96
    James Suckling
    Super-elegant but really tight aglianico here with lightly peppery black fruit, colored with inky and spicy notes. With aeration, you move into the herbal zone, with fresh bay-leaf, chai and light rosemary. The palate is medium-to full-bodied and you feel all the aromas pent-up, ready to burst out. The tension here is palpable and this will need several more years before the firm tannins soften, allowing the wine to open up and flood your palate. Still be patient. Try from 2024.
    VIN 96
    Vinous
    The 2015 Taurasi Riserva Radici is elegance personified, captivating with a deeply seductive bouquet that blends black cherries, rose petals and cloves with hints of underbrush, smoky minerals and crushed ashen stone. With each tilt of the glass, it seems to grow in both volume and depth. It unleashes waves of silken textures across the palate, carrying notes of savory cherry sauce, balsam herbs and dark, dark chocolate complicated by earth tones, as red inner florals amass toward the close. While youthfully structured, the 2015 Riserva is almost impossible to put down, mixing sweet tannins with hints of tobacco and dark fruits that seem to last for up to a minute. Bury this in the cellar and reap the rewards, as this balanced beauty is a long-distance runner. The Riserva is refined for thirty months in a combination of 60% forty-eight-hectoliter casks and 40% used barriques.
