“Lots of dried dark fruits, with blueberries and blackberries on the nose. Full body with chewy integrated tannins and a licorice, stone and dried-fruit finish. Bright and delicious. Racy and fine. Shows tension. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: Under the same ownership and winemaking guidance as Margaux’s famous classified growths Chateau Giscours and Chateau du Tertre, the Caiarossa Super-Tuscan blend is a sublime match of elegant French winemaking and Tuscan muscularity. Heavily perfumed, with strong notes of plum, cigar smoke, a hint of earthy undertones and a plethora of exotic spices, the palate is rich, ridiculously satisfying and round, with robust tannic structure and a decadent quality to the lengthy finish. Velvety and sumptuous. Fully organic and biodynamic, and bottled with a bare minimum of preservative, this is a sensual experience of the highest order.
