2010 Castello del Terriccio
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot|
The 2010 Lupicaia is another fruit-forward vintage, showing great intensity and depth. What makes this wine unique is its streamlined and focused nature. Overall, it is a ripe, generous and very intense wine with rich flavors and concentration. The integrated tannins are dusty and fine. It would pair well with rich and gamey meats like liver, innards or venison. Drinking range: 2019 - 2030 Rating: 95 Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (www.robertparker.com) (May 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
What a pleasure it is to taste the 2010 Lupicaia. Fresh and brilliant on the palate, the 2010 boasts superb energy and precision throughout. Rose petal, mint and succulent red-fleshed fruit are all beautifully delineated. The flavors remain quite youthful and vibrant, with little in the way of aromatic nuance. Readers will have to be patient, but there is little doubt the 2010 is a stellar wine with considerable potential. With time in the glass, the 2010 becomes richer, darker and more powerful, hinting at what lies ahead. Drinking range: 2017 - 2030 Rating: 95 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jun 2015)
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.Tragically at the end of 2019 the extraordinarily charming owner Cav. Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana Serafini Ferri or 'Pucci' as he was fondly known passed away. The estate continues in the safe hands of his nephew Vittorio - and with the same team around him working in the cellars and the vineyards we are confident the estate will go from strength to strength.
