This superb, perfectly mature Italian red from 2003 has long held a deserved place in my wine cellar and is much loved by many FromVineyardsDirect customers, indeed it was consistently one of our best sellers. But all good things come to an end, and 18-months ago we shipped what we understood to be the final cases of the 2003 vintage from the Caiarossa estate. So we were somewhat taken aback when in conversation with the estate's owner they revealed they still had a cache of 2003 resting in the estate's cellars which we shipped at once to the UK.

Having re-tasted a sample of the 2003 vintage, which was superb, we promptly shipped all of the remaining cases from the estate and these have now arrived into our warehouse.

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (1)
There's no shortcut to creating the complex layers of flavour which are found in mature examples of fine wine. Soft, supple tannins with delicious rich fruit and a brilliant long finish, with beautiful flavours of fruitcake, truffle, tobacco and leather, it really is a wine of both class and style. The 2003 vintage in Tuscany has a reputation for producing wines which are exceptionally age-worthy and the 2003 'Pergolaia' Caiarossa Toscana Rosso is a perfect example.

This wine is a delight. Aged beautifully with good brambly nose and summer pudding fruits remain on the tongue as it slips down a treat. However, do not linger too long over the bottle, share it and drink within an hour or so or it fades.

"I was convinced that the 2003 Pergolaia second wine of Super Tuscan Caiarossa would be over the hill. Its reddish brown hue and slightly dumb nose suggested as much but, gosh, one sip and I was smitten. The Sangiovese/Cabernet Franc/Merlot fruit has more than held up and its gloriously, defiantly rich, soft and mellow with concentrated cherry/strawberry flavours, leather, vanilla and spice."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
"...how about an 18-year-old super-Tuscan for less than £20? From a biodynamic estate owned and run by Château Giscours of Margaux, it's a blend of Sangiovese with Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Once again there's a mellow maturity to the colour, and the nose doesn't offer much other than a hint of truffle, olive and sweet damp earth, maybe a little cedar in there too. On the palate it is a different matter: I very much enjoyed its deep-set, rich fruitcake character, beautifully integrated oak and palate riven with a cherry-ripe acidity and taut tannin structure. It drinks really well, finishing on tobacco spice, coffee and black fruit, and is a bit of a steal for a mature wine of such quality. Drink over the next couple of years."
