The name of Caiarossa was coined as a homage to the soil, which is characterized by the presence of jasper, rock and pebbles intensely red in color. A creative name inspired by Gaia, mother of all the gods of Mount Olympus, goddess of fertility and of Nature, of the very earth itself. In 2004, Caiarossa was acquired by Eric Albada Jelgersma, and entered the world of quality wine thanks to the decades of experience which this family had acquired with two Grands Crus Classés in Margaux, Bordeaux, Château Giscours and Château du Tertre. This Super Tuscan wine is a gorgeous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Alicante.
Dark ruby red color. On the nose, delicious intense scents of dark ripe fruit, and notes of forest with oak. On the palate, the wine is delicious, complex, beautifully layered, balanced, full, lots of red ripe fruit and a lovely long-lasting aftertaste. Simply luscious!
Pairs well with roast or grilled meat, cured meat and aged hard cheeses
