TASSINAIA

2014 Castello del Terriccio

Grapes Cab Sauv, Merlot
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Tuscany
ABV 14%

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot. Lovely clean attack. Bright with good edge and an enticing Bordeaux grip - not firm, just a lovely feel. The fruit is perfectly 'a point'. Clever stuff in this tricky vintage, proving the calibre of Terriccio's super terroir. Red, rich strawberry notes meld with darker, deeper, firm plum flesh. A great 2014 from the team here and one that's hugely enjoyable now.  Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 L&S (Mar 2017)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Aromas of rose petal and currant follow through to a full body, with lightly stewed fruit and a flavorful finish. Firm and chewy. Drink in 2018. Rating: 90 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Oct 2017)

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.
