Up to eight grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Sangiovese. After a cold and rainy winter, 2013 vintage was characterized by a wet spring which led to pressure from fungal diseases, particularly at the blossom period. Lower-than-average temperatures in August further slowed the already delayed growth of our vines. Those challenging conditions made biodynamic preparations such as 501 (photosynthesis enhancer) very useful. Perfect conditions in September, which gave sunny and dry days matched with unusually cold nights helped to find the balance in the vineyard for 2013 vintage. The long and slow ripening allowed keeping nice acidity levels and let our grapes reach a great tannin maturation without excessive sugar levels.

Winemaker Notes

Lorenzo Pasquini


by Lorenzo Pasquini
Tasting Notes "This is a gorgeous blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Alicante. The 2013 Caiarossa struts its stuff with a soft, velvety mouthfeel and beautiful aromatic intensity. This vintage is complete and generous on all fronts. The bouquet opens slowly and seductively with dark fruit and dried cherry. Those primary aromas segue to spice, smoked cedar and bitter chocolate. You don't get a clear sense of any one variety, but this blend of seven grapes offers power, structure, intensity and textural richness nonetheless. Located in Riparbella, Caiarossa is one of the protagonists of the Tuscan Coast. Farming is organic and biodynamic." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
