96pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

In the 2015 Lupicaia, the percentage of Petit Verdot used in the blend was reduced slightly in favor of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage is beautiful, generous and full. Aged for 18 to 24 months in new French oak, there are some lovely balsamic notes in here but not too much wood. The wine flows forth with abundant dark fruit, black cherry and spice. This is a great effort from Castello del Terriccio.

93pts James Suckling

Tight and linear with compact and very fine tannins, as well as blueberry and currant flavors. Medium body. Racy and fine tannins. Better in 2020.

Winery Notes

Castello del Terriccio remains one of Maremma's under the radar properties. There are a few reasons for that. One of them is a strategy of setting high prices set many years ago that turned out to be hard to overcome when markets corrected first in the early 2000s and then later in the 2007-2009 time period. Terriccio also releases their top wines later than virtually all other properties, which means the collective interest in top years has often faded when the estate's wines hit the market. But when it comes to only about what is in the bottle, the Terriccio wines can be superb. At their best, the Terriccio reds combine the richness and power of Maremma with gorgeous nuance that develops in bottle over time. Proprietor Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana has spared no expense at Terriccio, and it shows.
