Caiarossa Bianco 2015
Price: $45.75    Sale $40.26

This elegant and balanced wine is an expression of both varietal Viognier and Chardonnay cultivated on the most chalky terroir of the estate.


Caiarossa Pergolaia 2010
Price: $25.25    Sale $22.22

(90 Points) The ripe plum and black cherry flavors are fresh, backed by firm, dusty tannins. Leather, tobacco and herb accents add depth as this persists on the finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2024. Wine Spectator

 

Caiarossa Aria 2013
Price: $45.75    Sale $40.26

Crispness and admirable balance are the hallmarks of Aria di Caiarossa, a blend of four noble
varieties that mirrors the estate philosophy.  This wine is notable for its spicy balsam, velvety
texture, and dense, fine-grained tannins.

A blend of Cabenert Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Caiarossa Caiarossa 2009
Price: $63.75    Sale $56.10

(93 points) The estate's 2009 Caiarossa is a typical wine from this part of Tuscany. Here the aromas and flavors are quite dark, powerful and brooding. Black cherries, plums, mocha, tobacco and smoke all flow from this intense Tuscan red. All the elements are very much in place. The 2009 is Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Alicante. (AG) Vinous (8/2013)

 
(92 points) Very ripe and rich, remaining juicy, revealing flavors of black cherry, blackberry, spice and licorice. Suave and polished, this delivers firm tannins and a long finish. (BS) (10/2013) Wine Spectator


(90 points) The 2009 Caiarossa (Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Alicante) delivers a surprisingly focused bouquet despite the motley assembly of grapes used in the blend. The wine shows a darkly concentrated appearance with sweet tones of ripe cherry and baking spice. (ML) (8/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

Castello del Terriccio Tassinaia 2013
Price: $39.75    Sale $34.98

(91 points) The Castello del Terriccio 2013 Tassinaia is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in equal measure. The wine opens to a darkly saturated garnet color and a very distant point of amber as the wine absorbs the ambient light. It offers offbeat aromas with dusty tones of chopped chestnut and grilled herb. The fruit is not immediate nor is it very evident. Dark chocolate and toasted nut appears on the close. The wine offers balanced acidity and good structure. But the lack of fruit indicates that you might be safest with a medium-term drinking window. Monica Larner Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Jan 2017)

 

Castello del terriccio Lupicaia    2009
Price: $157.50    Sale $138.60

Castello del terriccio Lupicaia    2010
Price: $135.00    Sale $118.80

It is the leading wine of the farm - the wine which has made the estate world-renowned. This rich Super Tuscan has considerable ageing potential and it is one of the finest made; its debut vintage, as well as all following vintages, achieved the coveted Tre Bicchieri award. The two characteristic red-brown parallel segments on the label symbolize the typical red colour of the soil in the vineyards.

Lupicaia is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, vinified from only the best of the carefully selected grapes, and aged for 18-24 months in new French oak barrels. A heady blend of crushed black cherry, blackberry and spice aromas precede plush blackcurrant, dark chocolate and mint-laced fruit with mineral aspect and a sculpting acity. Tannins are big, round and soft before an eternal finish.
