Castello del Terriccio

Castello del Terriccio

The estate's newest wine and achiever of the Tre Bicchieri award for all its vintages. The three roses on the label represent the rose bushes once to be found in abundance around the ancient castle.

Castello del Terriccio is a blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot, and is aged 18 months in French barrique. The wine has rich balsamic, spice and violet aromas with dense, blackberry, blackcurrant and chocolate flavours on the palate with mint note. Silky tannins and a long finish make this a choice bottle for serious collectors.
