Italy, Tuscan , Castello del Terriccio
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
The 2005 Lupicaia is a bit shorter in the mouth compared to later vintages, yet it's robust and layered with thick density and luscious fruit flavors. That is, it appears older in the mouth than it does on the nose. The wine remains well maintained and ripe, with a more granular texture. This was a hot vintage in most of Tuscany, but it's considered a cool one on this part of the Tuscan Coast.
