More about this wine

Caiarossa

Caiarossa

The winery was established in 1998 and is located in the heart of Tuscany, near the town of Cecina. Initially, it was built as geo-dynamic, and wine production adheres to the laws of biodynamics. Mineral fertilizers and pesticides are not used. Currently, 11 varieties are grown: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre for reds; Chardonnay, Viognier and Petit Manseng for whites. The wines are aged in different oak barrels. but only a small percentage (35%) of them are new oak. The idea is not to hide the personality of the wine behind the wood, but rather to let it express its natural characteristics and tastes.

Syrah

Syrah

Syrah/Shiraz - Two names of one and the same grape variety - the winemakers from the Old world use Syrah and the ones from the New world - Shiraz. The grape is a deep red, even the pulp, therefore this variety is not suitable for blanc de noir wine style. Syrah wine has specific floral aromas in its youth and develops notes of herbs and spices such as white and black pepper as it ages. These varietal specifics come out better when blended with a small amount of Viognier - a method gaining popularity more and more around the world. Syrah produces wines capable of ageing and improving over decades, which enhances its plummy and almost oriental spicy flavours.
