We've had great interest in this wine over the last year but I've been unable to come up with a pristine parcel until this evening.
In a nutshell, this is a special example that will open many eyes. I've had three different experiences with it since last May and each has been memorable. If you are a fan of everything from Vega Sicilia to Valentini Montepulciano, the 2004 Taurasi Radici will keep you engaged over the course of an evening with a good dose left in reserve for the second and third day (if there's any left, that is).
Mastroberardino has produced many memorable examples of Taurasi over the last 30-40 years and the 2004 Radici is one of the finest renditions from this storied winery since their 1968 Taurasi Riserva (those of you fortunate enough to have tasted the legendary 1968 will understand where I am going with this):
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for a rare combination of mystery and typicity that keeps the taster's interest for days. An outstanding wine that will only get better over the next two decades...
This parcel has the finest provenance available:
