2000 Castello del Terriccio
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv|
Balance, elegance and aromatic definition best describe this lovely vintage of Lupicaia, with all the hallmarks of Terriccio as it exudes notes of balsamic and pencil lead. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The '00 version of Lupicaia is not a big showy wine. Its virtues are balance, elegance and perfect aromatic definition. The nose offers distinct notes of ripe dark berries, as well as vegetal hints, suggestions of pencil lead and the usual balsamic tone. Tre Bicchieri. 2003 Gambero Rosso (Mar 2005)
Very deep crimson. Very fresh and fine bordeaux blend. Tastes as though it had been grown somewhere higher than 120-150 m above the Mediterranean in the distance. Lovely balance and fully evolved. Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 10)
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.
