The greatest Super-Tuscan of them all

2007 Tassinaia, Castello del Terriccio, Tuscany, Italy (£23.95, reduced to £21.95 by the case, Lea & Sandeman, 020-7244 0522, www.leaandsandeman.co.uk).

Castello del Terriccio can be found overlooking the sea in the province of Pisa, 30 kilometres from the city itself, in the very northernmost part of the Tuscan Maremma.

This estate makes two of my favourite wines in Italy, Lupicaia and Tassinaia, under the guidance of master-winemaker Carlo Ferrini. Terriccio is one of three ‘Super-Tuscan’ specialists to make my 100 Most Iconic Wine Estates book, along with Sassicaia and Ornellaia.

While you will undoubtedly have heard of these two rock-star properties, Castello del Terriccio flies stealthily under the radar. This means prices are incredibly competitive, but I can assure you that the wines lack nothing in nobility, extraordinary complexity and impeccable balance of exuberant fruit and intriguing, Tuscan, savoury nuance.

The 2007 is the finest vintage of this merlot, cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese blend I have tasted. It is a touch youthful, as you would expect given its class, but you must strike now because stocks are limited.

This is already a cult wine in my book and wine collectors are slowly waking up to its undeniable breeding. Pound for pound this is the greatest Super-Tuscan of all in my opinion. I gave it a massive 19+/20 in my notes.
