Caiarossa, a unique blended wine in Tuscany

The soul of the winery. An original blend out of 7 different red varieties to reflect Caiarossa's identity and the complexity of its outstanding terroir.

The winery has been running the vineyards according to Biodynamic and Organic principles since 1998. Since 2004 it has been part of the Albada Jelgersma family, which also owns a historic winery in Bordeaux - Margaux, Chateau Giscours. It extends for about 110 hectares, of which 31 are planted with vines, divided into 47 parcels, interpreted by 10 varieties. The mosaic of vineyards has been tailored according to differences in soil, altitude and exposure. The other hectares are covered by Mediterranean scrub and about 500 olive trees.

The winery was built by taking inspiration from Feng Shui's principles to identify shape and exposure and the choice of materials and colours. Since 2016 the winery has been part of the Toscana Wine Architecture project, which links 14 Tuscan wineries chosen for their architectural particularities.

2019 vintage

The 2019 vintage is likely to be remembered as one of the most homogeneous and high-quality vintages in recent years. During the Summer months, we recorded average temperatures with fresher nights. We had 6 significant rainfalls (3 in July and 3 in August) that helped avoid hydric pressure and created the perfect conditions to start the ripening season. We started the harvest slightly later than usual. We picked the first Merlot on September 6, then in order: Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, concluding with Petit Verdot. The weather conditions were excellent! We took our time to select and harvest each grape from each parcel in its most harmonious balance of freshness and ripeness.

96/100This 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. - James Suckling
95/100The 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
