The Mastroberardino estate is an example of excellence of the great wines of Southern Italy and bears witness to a unique winemaking heritage. For over 200 years, ten generations of passionate winemakers have followed one another, all driven by the desire to reveal the best interpretation of the Campania and Irpinia terroirs. Today, guided by the artistic spirit of Piero Mastroberardino, the 250-hectare family estate occupies three prestigious denominations: Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi.
Produced for the first time in 1986 in the Taurasi Riserva denomination, Radici Riserva 2016 is the result of long research and selection of the different exposures and types of soil in the vineyard.
This wine comes from the highest part of the Montemarano estate, which extends for 14 hectares in the historic heart of the denomination. The vines, with an average age of 20 years, are located at 550 meters above sea level and are exposed to the south-east. They are planted on clay-limestone soils with a density of 3,500 vines per hectare.
Winemaking and aging
Following manual harvesting, this great Campania red wine undergoes a long maceration on the skins. After vinification, the wine is aged for 30 months in oak barrels from France and Slavonia. Finally, this cuvée is aged in the bottle for 30 months before being released on the market.
