Tassinaia Castello del Terriccio 2006

Tasted 6/10/11 at Chelsea and Fulham Wine Society. £21.95 Lea and Sandeman. A Supertuscan blend. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese (the cepage lists Petit Verdot and Syrah too). Dark purple colour, classic 'cured ham' nose with cassis. The palate is big with coffee and dark fruits. A superbly crafted blend: this is a most enjoyable wine. Lovely now but will improve. Good value. From 2011, 17/20

  1. Tassinaia-06 is really underrated(only 90 points by Suckling)

    Wonderfull peacock tail tannins, blackberries and sweet cherries. A lot of mocca and coffee the next day.

    I don´t know any better wine red wine under £22, do you?
