The 2013 Lupicaia already presents some austerity, and a very slight evolution is beginning to show. The wine's appearance is darkly concentrated, and the bouquet is slightly tighter and more nervous. Dark cherries, dried blackberries and spice emerge from the bouquet. The wine was going through a phase of being slightly shut down when I tasted it. Drinking range: 2019 - 2035 Rating: 93 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.

Mid crimson. Attractively dusty cassis and charry, savoury black fruit. A lovely smoky aroma that cuts through the fruit sweetness. More obviously oaky on the palate but it’s the dry finesse that shines here. Dry, dark charry but elegant finish. Still very young and needs time or food.

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.
