1999 Mastroberardino - Taurasi Radici



Wine Spectator  

Outstanding red, still needing a bit more bottle age. Beautiful aromas of violets, berries and light vanilla lead to a full- to medium-bodied palate with fine tannins and a sweet fruit aftertaste. Drink now through 2006. 6,600 cases made.

Wine Advocate  

The 1999 Taurasi Radici Riserva comes across as surprisingly simple. In 1999 the maceration time was only 15 days and the wine seems to lack the depth and concentration of the best years. Ash, game, spices and dark fruit come together nicely in this accessible, understated Taurasi Radici Riserva. Today, the 1999 looks to be a relatively early drinking vintage.
