2010 Castello del Terriccio
|Grapes||Syrah, Tannat, Cab Sauv, Mourvedre|
A wine of gravitas and power, the 2010 Castello del Terriccio doesn't quite have the sexiness of the Lupicaia today. Instead, the flavors are deep, darker and meatier, with considerable depth and formidable tannins that need time to start resolving themselves. The 2010 Castello is a wine for the patient. Rating: 94 Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate (Oct 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.
