The Bolgheri Rosso is a blend dominated by Sangiovese and Cabernet, but also also includes Syrah and even Teroldego. The quality is without a doubt, with Jancis Ronbinon’s note below placing the wine alongside the much more familiar (and expensive) names of Serre Nuove and Guidalberto. This is the perfect wine to offer your customers an introduction to the wines of Michele Satta and the genuinely Italian character of Bolgheri.
“Mid to deep crimson. Rather a sweet nose that appeals a little less to me than Satta's Sangiovese-dominated wines. But on the palate there's a lovely counterbalancing tang. There is real energy here – this is a wine that cries out for food. I'm won over – especially by the nervy balance of fruit, acid and tannin on the palate. With its sweetness, it could be just the thing for our Chinese takeaway tonight.”
