Caiarossa 2009 Toscana IGT
This scenic estate in the Tuscan coastal region of Maremma grows all of its grape biodynamically. It was in the year 2004, when it was acquired by the same Dutch family who own the Margaux classified growths Château Giscours and Château du Tertre, and whose general manager, Alexander Van Beek, runs those two Bordeaux properties. Caiarossa is an extraordinary wine and the best from this estate. a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Alicante from their single Podere Serra all’Olio vineyard. The grapes are carefully hand sorted when they arrive at the winery. Maceration on the skins lasts between 20 and 30 days, with first a few days of cold maceration. Fermentation is done with only indigenous yeasts. Each varietal was aged separately, from 11 months for the most delicate grapes, Alicante, up to 20 months for the most powerful ones, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The barrels are from new to 3 years old, about 30% of new oak. James Suckling recently tasted a vertical selection of five vintages of this wine and 2009 was the standout. He scored it 95 points and said "Best ever from here. This is a wine that is sexy and caressing with polished and very fine tannins. Full body, with cool and bright fruit and a long currant, mint and mineral aftertaste. Very fine indeed." On SALE!!!
