Description

Michele Satta is one of the founding fathers of the Bolgheri DOC alongside Tenuta San Guido, Antinori and Ornelleia.  However, unlike the more famous names and despite the meteoric rise of the region they have remained a boutique, terroir driven winery that produces some of the best value fine wines in Italy.  Satta concentrate more on mediterranean varieties with Sangiovese and Syrah taking the lead on their wines with smaller proportions of Cabernet and Merlot.  The Bolgheri Rosso is a delightful blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet supported by Merlot, Syrah and a dash of Teroldego giving a wine that is vibrant and juicy with dark cherry, sweet spice and hints of mocha.  Classy and understated, this is such a joy to drink and brings all the warmth of the Tuscan coast in a glass.


The Bolgheri Rosso comes from densely planted vineyards which naturally curtail the vigour of the vine.  After a manual harvest, the perfectly ripe grapes are fermented with natural yeasts and receive regular punching down.  Following fermentation the wine rests in barrel for 12 months with a further 6 months in bottle prior to release.

2020 Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza, Mendoza

Cabernet Franc

The Verum Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza has classic elements on the nose including wild strawberry, blackberry, pencil shavings and a hint of blackcurrant leaf.  Lovely ripe fruits with a hint of stalky/vegetal character but not too much greenness, instead offering more body and depth of fruit and a slight touch of herbal mint. The full-bodied palate is elegant with firm tannins but a vital balancing acidity. Cedar notes show from the use of French oak and the finish is dominated by bright red fruit and mocha spice.
