"Really complex aromas of iodine, spices and blackberries with some clove, pepper and pumice undertones. Full-bodied, yet so balanced and focused with really fine tannins. Extremely long with some tar highlighting the fruit. Fantastic release. Reminds me of some of the great Taurasi from the 1960s from here. Drink or hold."

"A mix of crushed tart cherries, blackberry, and plums, offset by savory herbs, orange rind, and a hint of mocha. On the palate, velvety textures coat the senses, slowly giving way to a complex blend of citrus-tinged dark fruits and saline-minerals, as fine tannin saturates the senses.

Mastroberardino

View all from Mastroberardino
MastroberardinoEstablished in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino, Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery. Pietro was awarded the professional title of Mastro as testament to his skill in quality winemaking, a tradition that continued uninterrupted for 10 generations and lives on to this day.

Located in the town of Altripalda, the Mastroberardino family's holdings are spread across several parts of Irpinia, in areas that have historically proved to be the region's center of great wine production.

Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the viticultural and oenological heritage of the Roman age. Under the patronage of the "Presidenza della Repubblica," the winery has been appointed to reintroduce vine growing in the ancient city of Pompeii. The family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of Campania: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fianco, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe.
