Notes

This is a pre-shipment offer. The wines will be arriving in South Africa at the end of April.

'The 2009 Taurasi Radici represents a special selection of grapes from two areas: Mirabella and Montemarano. The first vineyard sits at 300 to 400 meters above sea level with volcanic, mineral-rich soils and the second is even higher in elevation with southern exposures and clay soils. Fruit from Montemarano ripens later and gives the wine the acidity and the tannic structure it needs for long cellar aging. Usually, Montemarano fruit goes to the Riserva version of this wine, and what is left over goes here. Radici is dark and powerful with full-throttle intensity and a touch of bright acidity. It shows good potential for a long evolution.' – Wine Advocate 94/100

Mastroberardino is the royal family of Campania. The estate’s Taurasi, first produced in 1928, is a legendary wine that can rival the best from any region,’ writes Antonio Galloni.

Traditionally produced from the local Aglianico grapes, it is aged in a combination of French oak barrels and larger Slavonian oak casks. From the village of Taurasi and the only Aglianico DOCG, comes the 2009 Radici, a special selection of grapes from two areas: Mirabella Eclano and Montemarano. The first vineyard sits at 300 to 400 meters above sea level with volcanic, mineral-rich soils and the second is even higher in elevation with southern exposures and clay soils.

It was the principal grape of famous Roman wines and is ‘probably the grape with the longest consumer history of all’ according to late oenologist Denis Dubourdieu.

We love Mastroberardino for its traditional, characterful wines that offer phenomenal value. Known for its huge tannins and high acidity, this 2009 will drink well from 2025 through to 2035 and longer.
