The Mastroberardino family has been dipped in the world and culture of winemaking for about three centuries. The most authoritative reports suggest that one Berardino, taking the professional title 'Mastro' - master craftsman - began the lineage in the 1700’s. He established the winery’s headquarters in Atripalda in the heart of the Irpinia winemaking region and, since then, ten generations have run the business, seeing periods of both expansion and contraction, recurring circumstances in the history of family businesses of ancient origin.

Chalky clayey soil in the Montemarano area. Guyot/cordon spur training system. The vines are situated at an altitude of approximately 500m a.s.l. with a density of 4,000 vines per hectare. Harvesting takes place in late October-early November. Yield per hectare is about 6 tons.

Taurasi Radici Riserva follows traditional red wine vinification with extended maceration on the skins and fermentation at controlled temperature.

About 30 months in 40 hl oak barrels and barriques and 12 months in bottle.

Food pairing

Taurasi Radici Riserva is a fine accompaniment to roast meats and larger game (deer, wild boar, etc.), spicy foods or truffle-based dishes and mature cheeses.
