Castello del Terriccio, Capannino, Maremma 2012

Maremma is one of those rare places in the world that can give Bordeaux a run for its’ money when it comes to traditional Bordeaux red varieties. This wine is made from 100% Merlot located on a spectacular vineyard overlooking the ocean on the Tuscan coast. The moderate 2012 vintage suited Maremma Merlot and this wine is simply gorgeous. It has notes of black berries, black currant, plums, chocolate, menthol and dried Provencal herbs. The palate is full bodied, with rich texture, beautifully integrated oak and a long firm finish. Drink now to 2025.
