TASSINAIA

2016 Castello del Terriccio

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

An eternal L&S favourite, tasting this vintage felt like slipping on a pair of much loved and very comfortable shoes. The recognition of a style and a familiarity that brings a smile to one's face - this is Tassinaia in all its pomp and is arrestingly Tuscan in its outlook. Fragrant with cassis, tobacco, sun warmed herbs and dark chocolate. 50% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the palate is sleek and deliciously haughty, but then a flood of plum and cassis fruits pushes through with a gentle leafy, dark mocha complexity. L&S (Nov 2021)

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.
