'Pergolaia' Caiarossa Toscana Rosso 2003
Save £18 per case thanks to The Spectator Magazine
"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 it’s gloriously, defiantly rich, soft and mellow with concentrated cherry/strawberry flavours, leather, vanilla and spice."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
We have managed to secure a small and unique parcel of Pergolia 2003 having sold over 250 cases of the 2005 vintage, which has now sold out. The 2003 has an extra two years bottle age and again is a delightful blend of sangiovese, cabernet franc and merlot from the renowned Caiarossa vineyards in Tuscany. It is at its peak now drinking beautifully with over 16 years of bottle age.
The 2003 Pergolaia is absolutely stunning and offers a touch more fruit concentration than the 2005, yet it retains the high level of complexity and a wonderful, lengthy finish. A superb wine from the remarkable biodynamic Caiarossa estate, close to the coast, under the same ownership as Château Giscours 3ème Cru Classé in Margaux.
How does the wine taste?
The 2003 vintage in Tuscany has a reputation for producing wines which are exceptionally age-worthy and the 'Pergolaia' Caiarossa Toscana Rosso is a perfect example. There's no shortcut to creating the complex layers of flavour which are found in mature examples of fine wine. Here we have soft, supple tannins with delicious rich fruit and a brilliant long finish with beautiful flavours of tobacco and leather. It really is a wine of both class and style and will continue to drink well for at least 3 years.
