Lupicaia Verticale

Castello del Terriccio


Tuscany is famously the land of spectacular landscapes and fine wine, but Castello del Terriccio is truly a hidden gem within this region, and a delight to all five senses.


From the estates 1,700 ha of rolling forests, fields of golden grain and vine rows, you can look out over a sapphire sea all the way to Corsica. A symphony of cicadas, Hoopoes and the whisper of the sea breeze delights the ears, while the sun caresses your skin. The eucalyptus trees, wild herbs, blackcurrants and warm spices leap out of a glass of Lupicaia, the flagship red wine of the estate. On the palate this incredibly long-lived wine, is elegantly balanced, complex and a true reflection of how well Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grow in the area. This boutique winery only produces seven wines: two whites, one rose, and four reds, internationally recognized as some of the best so called “super-tuscans”.

Nestled along the coastal hills between Pisa and Bolgheri, this is truly an estate which is rare to come across now: privately owned, where each wine reflects the passion and love of the owner, Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana.

Daniela Scrobogna leads the tasting with Bettina Bertheau (Export, International Marketing & Hospitality of the winery).
