Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint, anise, savory herbs and spices all ring out in a supple, gracious wine loaded with class. The 2009 needs a few years for some of the contours to soften, but it is a gorgeous wine with tons of personality. This is a decidedly round, sexy Lupicaia that is going to offer plenty of enjoyment over the course of the next fifteen years or so. - Galloni collapse

This wine has begun to come of age. This was a slightly cooler growing season, and this wine shows little of the ripe, fruit-forwardness that marked many of the following vintages. There is a velvety side to this Lupicaia, with more textural looseness and openness in general. - Monica Larner collapse

Rich aromas of blackberries and red chili pepper. Full body, with polished tannins and lightly chewy. Long finish. Name changed from Tenuta del Terriccio. Better in 2014.
