Ipsus, Caggio, Chianti Classico 2015


Case Format: 3x75cl

At the forefront of Italian winemaking, Il Cagg­io is a winery that founds its principles on the natural as well as the modern. Its wonderful vines epitomise Il Cagg­io, reflecting the purity and tranquillity of the nature surrounding the hamlet.

Ipsus has a distinguished power which represents its own unique terroir Fine and silky tannins are combined with red berries, cherries and the aromas of blood orange peel. Touches of violet, roses and lavender are seasoned with delicate spices and crushed stones. On the palate, with its tightly-wound texture and long, savoury finish, is an electrifying wine. A wine with great ageing potential, it is endlessly intriguing, and will not cease to delight you. It pushes the boundaries of Tuscan winemaking.

This 2015 Ipsus Chianti Classico Caggio Gran Selezione is the Mazzei familys first ever vintage from this property which they bought in 2006. This wine has sweet, heady, subtly integrated spice notes on the nose with cherry and wild herb. It is a creamy mid-weight wine, super-stylish with wonderfully integrated oak but there is not a huge depth of concentration or range of flavors yet. It is nevertheless very charming and refined.

The final bottle was the 2015 Ipsus from Caggio. This maiden release comes from 6.5 hectares of Sangiovese owned by the Mazzei family, matured 50% new tonneaux and 50% in stainless steel, plus eight months in cement vat. This was the first time I had tasted Ipsus, and I was impressed. Sure, it is primal on the nose and needs another year or two to subsume the oak, but it offers gorgeous scents of ebullient red fruit tinged with crushed violets and a hint of peppermint. The palate has more density than a lot of Chianti Classico and is quite insistent in terms of grip, offering pure blood-orange-infused, luxuriant red fruit toward the grippy finish. It improved with aeration and after a couple of hours was more open and floral. Superb.
