    Deep ruby red in color, this wine gives off a full, complex and intense bouquet redolent of tobacco, cherry, violet and berries. The Radici Taurasi Riserva is enveloping, elegant and persistent, with background notes of plum, bitter cherry, strawberry jam and black pepper. A fine accompaniment to roast meats and larger game, spiced dishes or truffle, and mature cheeses.
