2019 Caiarossa Rosso di Toscana IGT, Caiarossa, Tuscany

Cairossa has been owned by the same people as Chateau Giscours in Margaux since 2004 and is based on the Tuscan coast. 2019 is full of creamy red berry fruits and plenty of sappy tannins. There's some crunchier fruit on the palate and some woody herb flavours, as well as some more earthy spice.

Tasting notes

The Caiarossa 2019 Caiarossa is a complex blend featuring Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Syrah and Alicante from vineyard sites across this beautiful property in the high hills off the Tuscan coast. This organic and biodynamic wine is full and generous to the palate, yet it never feels heavy or too extracted. The wine is balanced and fresh with thick layers of dark fruit, crushed stone, tobacco and exotic spice.

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Issue #261 (June 2022)
95/100

This is an intense, full-bodied yet very well-balanced and polished red with velvety, firm and caressing tannins. Ripe black plums, blueberries, chocolate, mocha, sweet spice and dried lavender. Some oyster shells, too. Layered and full of character. Creamy at the end from the polished tannins. 26% syrah, 24% cabernet franc, 23% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon, 7% petit verdot, 4% sangiovese and 2% grenache. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink from 2026.
