About This Wine

Radici, produced for the first time in 1986, is the result of long and careful research concerning exposure, soil profiles, soil texture and chemical characteristics of the vineyards’ terroir. Its strong, dense structure and the aromatic concentration are the most evident characters of this prestigious interpreter of Irpinian viticulture.

Montemarano represents a historic site in the production of Taurasi, in the southernmost part of the DOCG area. The estate now plays an important role in the cultivation of Aglianico grapes for the production of Radici Taurasi DOCG and in particular for the Riserva. Here extreme thermal excursions and the slower pace of maturation provide the conditions for a late harvest, usually in November, offering grapes richer in tannins and acidity, enhancing the character of longevity.
