Castello di Vicarello Wines

A soul-shaking symphony

In late September and early October our grapes are hand-gathered under clear skies with crimson and golden hues of autumn as the backdrop.  These certified organic wines are two different impressions of the Maremma who begin their journey from the rolling hills of the Maremma and are slowly transformed by the ardor and dedication of Carlo and Brando.

‘Vibrant yet austere, a soul-shaking symphony. Deep expression of the most valuable spices. Monolithic yet sinuous. Cloves mellow the memories of sandalwood and opium… the pace continues as tangerine tones accompany a gradual opening, a swell of mineral accents strikes you. Slowly finishing with clove, liquorice and incense. Until the next breath, until the next…’

‘A sip of life. A mindful youth who enjoys the fullness of being. A deep expression of purple, sharp with memories of lavender, tinted in green with a trace of balsamic. Only the beginning of a story: golden nutmeg and light tobacco and never ceasing to surprise.

‘Scent of home, breath of life, sip of Tuscany. It moves as the sea that it looks at, from red crispy fruit tones to freshly bloomed purple flowers. It‘s a fresh and serene dawn that renovates itself at each sip. The body is round and always tense, while the finish is savoury and mineral, revealing the balsamic and floral hints that are the natural expression of Sangiovese in Tuscany.’
