Dreaming of a Southern Italian Escape? Radici Resort in Mirabella Eclano.
The classic and refined architecture, combines a classy stay with the absolute silence of Irpinia. From the oldest vineyards of Aglianico come the grapes of one of the most authentic expressions of native Campania viticulture, the prestigious Radici Taurasi DOCG.
The Resort is located on a hill about four hundred meters above sea level, in a valley surrounded by vineyards of Aglianico, Greco, Fiano and Falanghina, and is completely immersed in the vineyards, where relaxation is, at the same time, a starting point and destination for an ideal trip. A journey to tell, which takes you back to the origins of a story with incredible flavours.
Mastroberardino Art Gallery and Cellars
An ancient, centuries-old cellar, which gives the sense of welcome, experienced as a symbol of the rootedness of family values. Destination for visitors from all over the world, it has become an art gallery, following the installation of works by internationally renowned artists such as Raffaele De Rosa, Maria Micozzi, Doina Botez, Patrizia Comand, Felice Nittolo, Coderch & Malavia, Salvatore Fiume and Aldo Melillo.
Environments of work and contemplation, characterized by a refined and discreet sobriety, which brings to mind feelings that are now dormant: time slows down, banishes superfluous noises.
The precious, guarded with wise serenity, rest and temper their personality until the moment in which they will have to deal with the outside, bringing with them the wealth of sensations accumulated in the long gestation period.
They must carry a message, those precious ones, an ancient and strong message, which avoids compromises and superficiality: the message of wine, blood of the earth.
Taste the Difference
Mastroberardino Radici Taurasi 2017
Italy, Campania - $74.99 ($449.94 per case)
Rated 94, Vinous
“The 2017 Taurasi Radici is a force to be reckoned with, as it bursts from the glass with masses of raspberries, currants and plums, complemented by an array of autumnal spices and crushed violets. Its textural depth and density is something to behold, silky, almost creamy, yet contrasted perfectly by a core of mineral-laced black fruits and brisk acids, as an air of inner rose and cloves forms toward the close. The 2017 is persistent and structured yet also unbelievably fresh, as fine tannins frame its smoky mineral tones, along with lasting hints of blackberry and olive. This is a gorgeous rendition of Radici that should provide readers with a slightly earlier drinking window than normally expected. That said, we are talking in terms of Taurasi here, and this wine has a very bright future ahead of it.”
