Castello di Vicarello 2013, Carlo Baccheschi Berti

92.00

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.

Carlo Baccheschi Berti (Castello di Vicarello)
Set against a dramatic backdrop of the inimitable macchia mediterranea, forests, ancient olive groves and surrounding the impeccable gardens and grounds of 12th century Castello di Vicarello, you will find the vineyards.  Seven hectares of high-density, organically grown vineyards produce our two wines, Terre di Vico and Castello di Vicarello.  The story can begin to be told through the land and it’s climate, yet it’s deepest narrative can be ascribed to dedication and passion of Carlo Baccheschi-Berti.
