1999 Castello del Terriccio Lupicaia

SKU #1031415 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (90% cabernet sauvignon with 10% merlot) Dark ruby with a violet core; quite opaque. Incredibly sweet and sensuous aromas of crushed dark berry fruit. Intense blackberry fills the mouth, along with bittersweet chocolate and mint; very concentrated. The big, round tannins are leavened by a layer of refreshing acidity and the very long finish is sustained by a distinct mineral element. A wine of compelling richness.  (7/2003)

Additional Information:



- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
