A delicious, high quality Super Tuscan from Pietro Catelli at a very un-Super Tuscan price. Produced just by Bolgheri, a region nicknamed ‘the Bordeaux of Tuscany’ and home to two of the most famous Super Tuscans, Sassicaia & Ornellaia. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, this rich, complex wine is a must for all lovers of Tuscan reds. Already drinking well now but it will go on improving for the next few years. The wine is astounding value.
‘Superb offering from my favourite online site. Comes from an area next to Bolgheri where the Super Tuscans are crafted. Delicious blend of Cabernet and Sangiovese with 14 months in French oak.’
‘Casa Catelli’s excellent Rosso di Toscana is unmistakably Italian. It has slightly sour dark cherries with a little cassis, some savoury leather and green olives, and a hint of chocolate. It’s delicious in other words, and great value.’
Our tasting notes
Dark, concentrated garnet colour. Strong scent of black currant, spice and a hint of bell pepper. Rich and concentrated on the palate with vibrant notes of blueberry and dry prunes, together with leather and tobacco. Lovely long finish. Great value!
