Caiarossa 2015 Super Tuscan Red
From Best Tuscan Vintage Since 1997
Rated 96 points $49.99 Organic Since 2003



There are so many cool and exciting things to say about this wine... so where do we start? First off, the Caiarossa estate is located in the Cecina Valley, in the Pisa area of coastal Tuscany, about an hour north of Bolgheri, where the 'Super Tuscan' phenomena was born out of the creation of wines like Sassicaia and Ornellaia. The vineyard was purchased in 1998 by the owners of Châteaux Giscours and du Tertre in Margaux, certified organic in 2003, certified biodynamic in 2005, and the estate has been subtly releasing beautiful red blends under-the-radar for the last decade with a label depicting the head of Dionysus, Greek God of wine. The vineyard is breathtakingly beautiful (***click here for video ***) in a very rural area away from 'Tuscan tourism'. The locals call the Val di Cecina 'il Giardino', the Garden, which is thought of as a reference to Eden. Occupying higher ground than Bolgheri, there is a different microclimate, and the vineyard is planted to a variety of grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Alicante. The resulting style is one of ripeness, depth and polish, coupled with freshness, energy and Tuscan soul. The luxurious hand of its Margaux-influenced breeding makes this not only a beautiful wine to drink, but also a wine of great value. Caiarossa is about 1/4 the price of highly sought after Super Tuscans. Also, the vintage is very important :: 2015 is the best Tuscan vintage since 1997, the highest rated with 97 points, and it's both a near-term and long-term drinking vintage. We have 750 ml's available in wood six packs and a mere six magnums for $99.99. In addition to offering you the Caiarossa today, we are also including our in-stock inventory of major hitters in 2015 Super Tuscans : Ornellaia (98 points), Solaia (100 points) and Masseto (100 points).   


Cheers! the Murray family

 

Caiarossa Toscana 2015

js 96

RATED 96 JAMES SUCKLING :: 'The nose immediately shows a fabulous contrast between riper mulberries and blackberry crumble and freshly ground herbs, citrus and incense. The palate shows much the same polish, carrying bright blue-fruit flavors across a bedrock of muscular tannins and driven acidity. This finishes long and very grainy yet succulent.' A blend of merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, sangiovese, petit verdot and alicante.'Caiarossa is one of the protagonists of the Tuscan coast, offering a full range of fascinating wines from the Pisa area. These wines are always a treat to taste and remind us of the winemaking potential of this unknown area.' Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

Ornellaia Ornellaia 2015

v 98 js 98 ws 97

RATED 98 POINTS :: 'The 2015 Ornellaia is a dream wine with magnificent balance. All the elements are in the right place. In most vintages, Ornellaia needs time to fully come together, but the 2015 is just impeccable, even in the early going. Ornellaia is about finesse and power. Bright raspberry jam, mint, white flowers and pomegranate are some of the many notes that punctuate the finish in a memorable Ornellaia that will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate.'

Antinori Solaia 2015

wa 100 js 100 ws 98

RATED 100 POINTS :: 'There is a magical infinity, a continuous loop of compatibilities, between the icon wines of Tuscany and the 2015 vintage. The stunning 2015 Solaia is solid evidence of this perfect alignment. With the 2015 vintage, Solaia is liquid sunshine not just in name but also in fact. The bouquet is immediately soft and sensual with dark fruit, spice and sweet tobacco. The mouthfeel shows intensity and power, but you don't get any heavy residue from the dry extract (measured at 33 grams per liter). Indeed, the wine feels glossy, tonic and fresh. It is composed of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Sangiovese and a tiny part Cabernet Franc.'

Ornellaia Masseto 2015

wa 100 ws 98

RATED 100 POINTS :: 'The wine is absolutely teeming with sensorial spirit that is transmitted through the bounty of the bouquet and the solid tannins of the mouthfeel. Nothing about the wine goes unnoticed or unchecked. Its many working pieces fit together with precision like a well-oiled machine. The 2015 vintage is characterized by a level of sheer exuberance that also defined the 2004 and 2007 vintages. Yet, it also reveals similar power, directness and linearity that we saw in the 2010 vintage. The 2015 Masseto takes the best of all those past vintages and confines those qualities to this single, spectacular bottle.' 100% MERLOT 30-40 YEAR OLD VINES
