1999 Castello del Terriccio

Grapes Merlot, Cab Sauv
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Tuscany
ABV 13.5%

The estate’s 1999 Lupicaia emerges from the glass with the essence of roasted coffee beans, grilled herbs and dark fruit. This is a beautifully balanced Lupicaia blessed with knock-out aromatics, layered fruit, and a rich, powerful personality. The 1999 remains a powerful, structured Lupicaia that could use another few years in bottle to fill out its large-scaled frame.

Drink 2007-14 Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot Very mellow ruby. Lively, round, rich, fully evolved with only a hint of rusty nails on the finish. Easy Italian claret. A blend of velvet, dust and fine red fruits. 13.5% Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2009)

The '99 version of this Cabernet and Merlot based super Tuscan is one of the most successful yet produced. The masterful harmony of nose and palate are what make it so irresistible. The bouquet melds a wide range of aromas, from wild black berries to balsamic notes with undercurrents of oriental spice. The fruit that comes out on the palate is lifted by the densely woven, soft tannins and then echoed unhurriedly on the finish. Tre Bicchieri. Gambero Rosso 2002 A beautiful estate in Tuscany's Bolgheri region where oenologist Carlo Ferrini is creating 'super-French-Tuscans'. With 90%Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, this shows the ripeness and depth of the vintage, richer but perhaps less concentrated that the superb 1997, dark colour and voluptuously textured fruit with a firmness reminiscent of Pauillac.'

Castello del Terriccio

The Castello del Terriccio estate is one of the most beautifully situated along the entire coastal region, some miles north of Bolgheri. The 60 hectares of vines enjoy wonderful exposure, overlooking the sea, benefitting from its warmth and brightness. The vineyards are surrounded by 'maquis' and eucalyptus trees, which as well as protecting them, also contribute to the aromas and scents that so characterise the Terriccio wines.

Planted predominately with Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah, the wines are made by consultant oenologist Carlo Ferrini, who has to date brought thirteen 'Tre Bicchiere' awards to the estate.

These are wines that can be approached almost immediately and yet age so well over a decade and more.

Owned by the extraordinarily charming Cav. Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana Serafini Ferri, once a talented horseman and still a passionate breeder.
