Caiarossa Super Tuscan Tuscany 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This 'super-Tuscan' blend of biodynamically-grown grapes shows thepurest expression of sumptuous, seductively ripe flavours reminiscent of blackcherries, menthol, liquorice, figs and jammy plum, all of which are thenfollowed by great earthy and smokey overtones. Delicious to drink now and overthe next 4 to 5 years, I enjoy this cracking wine with a Porcini mushroomrisotto. (Simon Staples - Sales & Marketing Director, Oct-08)

Stylistically, a "super-Tuscan" blend of Merlot (33%), Cabernet(33%) and Sangiovese (22%), spiced up with a splash of Petit Verdot (6%), Alicante (3%), Syrah (2%) and Mourvedre (1%), from biodynamically-grown grapes. The low proportion of new barrels for the maturation allows a pure expression of the sumptuous, seductively ripe flavours reminiscent of black cherries, menthol, licorice, figs and jammy plum, followed by earthy and smokey overtones. Declicious to drink now and for the next 4-5 years.
