91 points "Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, terroir-driven aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, licorice, iron, woodsmoke and minerals. At once dense and suave, with herbal and peppery nuances complicating the wine's aromatic flavors of red cherry, plum, tobacco and flinty minerals. Finishes with building tannins and a juicy freshness."

95 points "The 2006 Taurasi Radici hits the palate with masses of blueberries, black berries, flowers and spices. The 2006 is a big, explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said, it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic, concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels." Best 2016-2046

91 points "This tight red balances ripe blackberry, cherry and currant flavors with earthy underbrush and spice notes. There are big tannins here, but the fruit fights through to the licorice- and mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 6,700 cases made. –NW" Best 2013-2020
