Castello del Terriccio is one of Tuscany's most impressive properties. The estate is located in the upper reaches of Maremma, near Pisa and only a few kilometers from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Terriccio traces its rich history back at least several centuries, but vineyards were only planted in the late 1980s. Proprietor Dr. Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana was inspired by the success of Sassicaia and he set out to make his version of Tuscany's most famous wine.  Rossi sourced cuttings from some of France's top estates and began planting the high-density vineyards that are the source of Castello del Terriccio's top bottlings. Lupicaia, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based red, was introduced formally with the 1993 vintage, followed by Castello del Terriccio, which features Syrah, Petit Verdot and a host of other Mediterranean varieties. Both Lupicaia and Castello del Terriccio can be considered the estate's flagship high-end wines, while Tassinaia, formally the second wine of Lupicaia, is a decidedly more affordable red.

Between 1999 and 2000 the estate began to reduce their reliance on new oak, lowered toasts levels and also shortened the amount of time the wine spends in barrel as they moved away from the excessively oaky style that was in vogue in Italy in the mid to late 1990s. The results in recent vintages have been nothing less than striking<An abstract from Vinous' article "Lupicaia: An Emerging Tuscan Thoroughbred">
