The 2008 Taurasi Radici Riserva Antonio is a one-off wine made only this vintage to celebrate the incredible life and influence of Antonio Mastroberardino who passed away in January 2014. The wine is made only with fruit from the Montemarano vineyard...This is a beautifully polished and sophisticated wine with a deep, dark color and an impressively silky quality to the tannins. The bouquet shows ethereal tones of dried earth, rose petal, tar, resin and cola. The 2008 vintage was especially successful...This is an elegant wine dedicated to one of the most passionate advocates of Campania wine. eRobertParker.com

Nice acidity, tannins and earthy fruity character. Slightly thick for aglianico and I expect it to integrate a little better with time in bottle. Hard to believe it needs more time at this age.

Bold and beautiful. This was my choice tonight for steak night. Really solid acidity and persistent tannin with bold fruit. What's not to love? Still going strong after 7 years!
