The 2016 Taurasi Radici is an elegant, feminine beauty that’s geared for many years of development in the cellar, showing an alluring, dark, and earthy expression up front, which blossoms into a display of citrus-tinged blackberries, rosy florals, and a hint of animal musk. It coats the palate in silky richness, ushering in polished black fruits, offset by cooling herbal and mineral tones, as round tannins slowly emerge. The finish is long, youthfully poised, and structured, staining the senses in dark fruits, along with hints of spiced citrus and crushed violets. What a gorgeous Taurasi this is, and it will only improve with cellaring.
