The 2006 is a big explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046. -Antonio Galloni

Radici is a landmark red wine for Italy, because it shows the high-quality wine-making potential of the south. A hearty and sophisticated expression of Aglianico, this opens with smoky aromas of crushed mineral, black peppercorn, ripe fruit and cola. It shows firm tannins and impressive length.

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 wine's aromatic flavors of red cherry plum tobacco and flinty minerals. Finishes with building tannins and a juicy freshness. - Ian D'Agata

This tight red balances ripe blackberry, cherry and currant flavors with earthy underbrush and spice notes.

This tight red balances ripe blackberry, cherry and currant flavors with earthy underbrush and spice notes. There are big tannins here, but the fruit fights through to the licorice- and mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. – NW

The spicy scent of freshly grated nutmeg and the nuances of leather, iron and rich blue fruit all contribute to the complex depths of this wine. It’s bloody and black in flavor, with a vibrant finish that suggests there’s more to be revealed with age. Built for spit-roasted boar.

Beautiful ruby red color. Striking aromatics combine macerated black cherry saddle leather plums dates and clove.

Striking aromatics combine macerated black cherry saddle leather plums dates and clove. The bouquet evolves even more as the wine opens revealing additional spice components and complexity. On the palate the 2006 Radici displays striking depth while remaining precise and elegant. Revealing the same complex fruit nuances from the nose as well as a combination of fruit excellent structure and prominent tannins the overall impression indicates the potential for a decade of improvement. One of the most intricate and age-worthy wines of the genre this vintage of Radici further justifies this producer as the vanguard of the red-wine revolution in the Italian south.
