Cafaggio is first mentioned in 1408, noted at the end of that century as a property of the Benedictine monks of Siena. Nowadays, the winery produces several labels in classical Tuscan appellations, as well as IGT wines. Basilica del Cortaccio is produced from 4.2ha planted with five different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon at 355m altitude, and is farmed organically. Fermented in stainless steel then aged for 18 months in second-use French oak barriques. Susan Hulme MW: Lovely complex nose cedar, spice and blackberry, very smooth and harmonious palate. Andrea Briccarello: Clean, coffee notes, roasted and intense notes of juicy fruits, charming spices and jam. Annette Scarfe MW: Pure blackcurrant leaf with an energetic vibrant mid-palate â fresh and attractive.
2016 was an incredible vintage in Tuscany, so it is no surprise that we are seeing incredible scores coming through.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is rich with both fruit flavors and earth tones. It is full-bodied and now finally hitting the prime drinking period. Even at 6 years old, this wine has a ton of life!
"Basilica del Cortaccio, an elite vineyard in Cafaggio, comprises 4.2 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, with sensorial attributes that reflect a fine âterroirâ, evoking the variety of origin. Produced for the first time in 1989, the Basilica del Cortaccio variety is grown according to the principles of organic farming." - Winery
