Castello-del-Terriccio-Tassinaia-2015

Castello del Terriccio, ''Tassinaia'', 2015

“The 2015 Tassinaia is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, now with an element of Syrah. The wine is fermented partly in steel and partly in oak and brings a breeze of spice from the get-go. This second-level red from Castello del Terriccio offers plenty of rich, exuberant and succulent fruit. I imagine it will open nicely over the next few years. Tassinaia is a selection of fruit from different vineyard parcels.”
- Moncia Larner, Wine Advocate (93+ points)

“A firm and chewy red with dried fruits and hints of orange peel, making this a rich yet toned wine with an attractive tannin outline. Drink in 2020.”
- James Suckling (93 points)
