Description

This ruby-red wine has a full, complex spectrum of aromas, particularly of violet and blackberries. On the palate, it is full-bodied and mouth-filling, with persistent and elegant notes of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam and black pepper.

Radici Taurasi pairs flawlessly with roasted meats, larger game, spicy Middle Eastern dishes, truffles and aged, flavorful cheeses.

91 Points Wine Advocate - The 2012 Taurasi Radici is still in the process of integrating, and the oak notes are heavy-handed at the moment. Under that sweet spice and toast, you definitely get a clear glimpse of the pretty fruit below. Morello cherry and dried blackberry give substance and fiber to the core of this robust red wine. Much of this vintage rides on the oak, however. I'd suggest waiting a couple more years before popping the cork.

93 Points Wine Enthusiast - Underbrush, red fruit, dark spice and a whiff of menthol are some of the aromas that come together on this. The firmly structured elegant palate offers ripe plum, red cherry, licorice and tobacco framed in youthfully austere fine grained tannins that need time to unwind.

93 Points Wine Spectator - Lovely hints of spice box, graphite and violet accent the pure black currant and black cherry fruit in this harmonious, full-bodied red. There's good density to this focused version, with savory wild herb and tarry mineral details showing on the creamy, lingering finish. Drink now through 2030.

93 Points James Suckling - Black-walnut, blackberry and black-olive aromas follow through to a full body, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Very rich and intense. Give it a year or two to come around still.
