2011 Castello del Terriccio
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot|
Slightly higher toned nose of rich cherry, plum and blackcurrant with a touch of graphite. The palate has distinct structure, decent fruit weight, cassis and plum once more, lovely feel with some oak, tobacco and graphite on the sleek finish. 50% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot first vintage made with this blend as previously it contained 10% Sangiovese. L&S (Jul 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Black cherry, plum, herbs, dark spices and leather give the 2011 Tassinaia its distinctly dark, brooding personality. This is an especially virile vintage for the Tassinaia. There is no shortage of breadth or power in the glass. Drinking range: 2016 - 2021 Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2016)
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.
