Peter Maude Fine Wines

2017, Caiarossa Toscana

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante (Mourvedre), Sangiovese, Petit Verdot

This has sharp pepper and spice overtones with full blasts of sage, toast and cinnamon. 2017 was one of the hottest recorded vintages in Tuscany, and while the alcohol is well balanced in the overall structure, you feel the warmth of the tear through the exuberant and exotic fig and raspberry puree fruit. Rich, powerful and concentrated, some dryness to the tannins on the finish but overall this is seductive and well balanced. Tuscan estate located in the Maremma and owned by the Albada family of Château Giscours. Blend completed by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Alicante (Mourvedre), 3% Sangiovese, 5% Petit Verdot. Farmed biodynamically.
Drinking Window 2022 - 2040. Jane Anson, Decanter.
