First produced in 1986, the Radici Taurasi Riserva is the result of painstaking research into the chemical and physical characteristics of the Montemarano vineyard. The idea was to fully understand the environment in which the roots (or "radici" in Italian) grow. This wine is made from 100% Aglianico grapes and is aged in oak for 30 months, with an additional aging of 42 months in the bottle to give it a refined and elegant taste.
Deep ruby-red in color, complex and intense aromas of black fruits and tobacco complement undertones of cherries and plum skins. On the palate, the Radici Taurasi Riserva is enveloping, elegant, and persistent, with a long finish of blueberries and mulberries.
Pair this wine with paccheri with ragu alla napoletana, pork shoulder with chestnuts and olives, and meatballs braised in tomato sauce.
