Owned by the Albada Family of Bordeaux’s famous Château Giscours since 2004, Caiarossa has become a "gem of an estate on the Tuscan Coast" in the eyes of the Wine Advocate's Monica Larner, providing a "solid quality record" and "forward-looking trajectory".

Located in Riparbella, just inland on the northern part of the Tuscan coast, releases from Caiarossa have become one of James Suckling's go-to Tuscan reds "because of their drinkability and complexity", noting he also loves "that they are made from biodynamic grapes as well".

Scoring 96 points from James Suckling, 95 points from the Wine Advocate's Monica Larner and double 93 points from Jane Anson and Decanter, this Caiarossa 2018 is a very "enjoyable vintage" (JA). Offering a "seriously Mediterranean bouquet", the palate is "complex and juicy" with wonderful "slate minerality" (JA) undercurrent.

About Caiarossa

Unlike the usual Super Tuscans, the Caiarossa consists of a blend of 7 French and Italian varietals. Since 2004, it shares the same owner as Château Giscours and Château du Tertre and the marked uptick in quality has been evident. Today we are pleased to offer the latest release from this exciting estate.

Located at Riparbella, a village in the province of Pisa that is part of the Montescudaio DOC appellation, Caiarossa was founded relatively recently in 1998 by Flemish businessman Jan Theys, who reportedly invested between 4 to 5 million euros in the property that had been farmed biodynamically from the start. After running out of capital, he went looking for a partner who shared the same interest in natural vineyard management and found Eric Albada Jelgersma, owner of Château Giscours and Château du Tertre.

According to Alexander Van Beek, the general manager of Giscours and Château du Tertre, Eric “likes to buy properties that have much growth potential, whether they have been mismanaged or are in bad shape”, and Caiarossa definitely showed tremendous potential, as Alexander relates:

“I was totally flabbergasted by the quality of the wines given that they are made from such young vines. The potential here is remarkable.” - Alexander Van Beek

With the new ownership on board in 2004, wine scores gradually improved, their wines offer “great insight into the forward-looking trajectory and the solid quality record of this gem of an estate on the Tuscan Coast” (Monica Larner).
