2014 Mastroberardino, Taurasi Riserva, Ridici (RT94) Mastroberardino did exceptionally well with this wine in the challenging 2014 vintage. Deep, dark ruby with an impenetrable appearance, this brooding beast belts out thunderous bass notes built on a foundation of blackberry, black cherry, hints of tar, bramble brush and classic ash elements. The palate is full figured with deeply ripe fruit, wonderful acidity, and mouth coating ripe tannins. This power-packed beast is made for long term aging. If you’re drinking it in the near term give it plenty of air. Drink 2028-2045
