Reviews of purchase Caiarossa, Toscana IGT, 2015
Wine of intense ruby color.
The full, generous, rich taste of the wine is replete with fruity notes, tones of blueberries and wild berries, supported by dense, velvety tannins and fresh acidity. The long-lasting aftertaste leaves a pleasant spicy trail.
The intense aroma of the wine attracts with notes of blueberries, raspberries and mulberries, decorated with notes of chocolate, spices and toast.
The wine will harmoniously complement traditional Italian dishes, fried and stewed red meat, pizza, pasta with meat sauce, lasagne and cheeses.
Dry red wine Caiarossa, Toscana IGT belongs to the representatives of "Supertuscany" and demonstrates all the complexity and nobility of the Tuscan vineyards. Seven grape varieties in a blend create the perfect picture of the Podere Serra all'Olio terroir. The berries are harvested by hand from late August to early October, as they reach optimum ripeness, undergoing primary sorting in the vineyard. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are carefully selected on a sorting table and separated from the ridges. Maceration lasts 20-30 days, then alcoholic fermentation starts for each variety separately in concrete and wooden vats using exclusively natural yeast. Upon completion of the vinification processes, the wine is aged for 11 to 20 months in tonne and oak barrels, 30% of which are new, and 6 months in concrete containers, and then bottled.
The history of the Caiarossa winery began in 1998 with the cultivation of vineyards using organic methods and taking into account the principles of geodynamics and Feng Shui in the construction of cellars. In 2004, Caiarossa was acquired by Eric Albada Gelgerma, who contributed to the transition to the world of quality wine thanks to his many years of experience gained at the legendary Bordeaux Château Giscur and Château du Tertre.
The company's logo is an ancient Etruscan head of clay depicting the Greek god Dionysus dating from the fourth century BC, discovered near the city of Volterra and owned by the owner of the farm, Eric Albad Gelgerm. The god of plants and wine is like no other personifies the ideal concept of the wines produced at Caiarossa. The name of the farm was coined as a tribute to the soil, which is characterized by the presence of jasper, stones and pebbles of bright red color. A creative name inspired by Gaia, the mother of all gods of Mount Olympus, the goddess of fertility and nature, the Earth itself.
The vineyards of the farm are located near the coast of Tuscany, in Val di Cecina, in the southern part of the province of Pisa, on the southern slopes of Poggio di Nokola, at an altitude of almost 600 meters above sea level.
