Caiarossa is a patchwork oh hills, soils, terroirs and varieties. The first vineyards, that strech over 16 hectares were planted in 1998 after a careful analysis of te soil. The result of the many driling tests revealed the heterogenous nature of the land, mainly clay with limestone at lower altitudes (150-200 meters) and sedimentary rocks mixed with iron-rich sand at higher elevations. 27 different terroirs were identified, and each one of these was allocated to the variety that could interpret it at best. Another 15 hectares of vineyards divided into 20 percels were planted between 2012 and 2013 a few kilometers from the winery, in an area characterized by a soli rich with clay and southern sun exposure. The result is a mosaic of 31 hectares divided in 47 parcels and 10 different varieties. Cabernet Franc, planted over more than 7 hectares of land, plays the leading role. Then, ther are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, petit Verdot and Alicante for red grapes.
"Rich, powerful and concentrated, some dryness to the tannins on the finish but overall this is seductive and well balanced."
