Super Tuscan Half Price Deal- WPW EXCLUSIVE PRICE
“Terriccio” means soil in Italian, and Castello del Terriccio, owned by Dr. Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana, is devoted to creating wines that speak eloquently of the estate’s roots and its vineyards’ unique terroir. Although only founded in the 1980s, Castello del Terriccio has agricultural history that stretches back to the Middle Ages; today, this estate crafts beautiful Super-Tuscan wines from its 148 acres in Maremma that range along the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Looking to Sassicaia for inspiration, Rossi sourced his vines from top Bordeaux estates, and Rossi and his team, which includes world famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini, employ traditional Bordeaux protocol to craft the estate’s complex, age-worthy wines. Castello dei Terriccio builds on the legacies of Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Le Macchiole, and this estate’s wines will thrill wine-lovers who can’t get enough of those iconic Super Tuscans.

EMAIL CASE DEAL- $144.00cs ($12btl)
Capannino takes its name from an estate on the farm where the show horse stables are. It is the first wine produced at Terriccio and is made of 70% Merlot and 30% Syrah. Fermentation and a 6 month ageing take place in stainless steel, followed by a short period in oak barrels. Ruby red in appearance, with notes of eucalyptus on the nose, the palate unfolds with a balanced combination of red fruits, bitter cherries and violets. Beautifully structured, with velvety tannins, this is a savory yet fresh red, elegant but approachable. Ideally this is a wine to be drunk young, but can be aged for a couple of years to develop the secondary characteristics further. But it’s so good, who can wait?
