“The biodynamic and certified organic Caiarossa 2019 Aria di Caiarossa is a blend of Merlot, Syrah, Alicante, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. You feel the concentration and richness of those grapes, especially the softness of the Merlot and the Syrah, and the firm structure of the two Cabernets. The bouquet reveals black and purple fruits with some background leather and spice. This is a fun and accessible Tuscan red blend.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Rich, impenetrable ruby red with a slightly brightening edge. Multi-layered and complex on the nose, with ripe wild berries and plums, with hints of verbena, bitter chocolate and wet leather in the aftertaste. Substantial and powerful on the palate, with a fine tannin structure, spicy and a long-lasting finish.” – Falstaff

“A juicy and savory red with dark-berry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with tight, chewy tannins that give the wine length and focus. From biodynamically grown grapes. 30% merlot, 25% cabernet franc, 20% syrah, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 5% grenache. Needs time to soften. Try after 2025.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: Merlot, Syrah, Alicante, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. 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.
