2016 Caiarossa "Caiarossa" Toscana (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $70)

SKU #1486953 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very complex aromas of crushed berries, yet the fresh herbs, dried berries, sandalwood and Spanish cedar add complexity and brightness. Full-bodied with tannins that melt into the wine. Savory. Cabernet franc, merlot, syrah, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot with a touch of alicante and sangiovese. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Caiarossa will be released in September. This wine is a blend of seven grapes—42% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 15.5% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4.5% Sangiovese and 1% Alicante. This vintage sees a slightly higher percentage of Cabernet Franc than usual, but I am told that the 2018 edition will see more Syrah instead. The bouquet presents a beautiful first wave of dark fruit that pushes the limits of ripeness but remains safely within the realm of elegance. The aromas are balanced and focused with blackberry, cassis, and light touches of salty or rusty mineral. The wine is not too constructed or big in the mouth, rather is shows a delicate level of elegances that absolutely seals the deal. (ML) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark and brooding, this red delivers blackberry, cassis, violet, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors, set on a dense frame. Youthful and fresh, with a firm structure and a long, saturated finish of dark fruit. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
