Castello del Terriccio
It is the leading wine of the farm - the wine which has made the estate world-renowned. This rich Super Tuscan has considerable ageing potential and it is one of the finest made; its debut vintage, as well as all following vintages, achieved the coveted Tre Bicchieri award. The two characteristic red-brown parallel segments on the label symbolize the typical red colour of the soil in the vineyards.
Blackcurrant, dark chocolate and mint-laced fruit with mineral aspect
A heady bliend of crushed black cherry, blackberry and spice aromas
Tannins are big, round and soft before an eternal finish
