HISTORY: An important difference between Michele Satta and other big names like Ornellaia or Sassicaia is that the determined and very likeable wine producer in Bolgheri runs the oldest winery that belongs to a winemaker. Satta founded its winery in Castagneto Carducci at a time when grape growing in the Tuscan region was in its infancy and great successes were still to come. The path taken by the innovative winemaker was new in Bolgheri at the time. Thus he, supported by his wife Lucy from the very beginning in his decisions, not only focused on the international varieties Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, but also on the noble Sangiovese vine.

VINIFICATION: During the harvest, which is done manually, only perfectly mature grapes are selected, after which fermentation is carried out in Stainless Steel tanks using only native, ambient yeasts. Then, manual submersions of the cap of the wine are carried out and a pumping over regiment is employed initially twice per day, and then once if necessary for the extraction process. After 12 months in barriques the wine is bottled, after which it remains in the wine cellar for another 6 months to rest before being sold. 

TASTING NOTES: This pretty Bolgheri Rosso has an intense ruby red color with intense and fresh notes of Red and Black fruit with perceptions of scents of Leather and Tobacco. The palate is wonderfully harmonious and accessible, fresh & fruit driven with a solid backbone of Tannin, finishing with persistence and elegance. 

James Suckling: Spiced Plums, Cherries, White Pepper, Orange Peel and Mediterranean herbs on the nose, followed by a medium-bodied palate with a tight, tannic structure that grows together with the juicy fruit. Drink now. 91 pts.

FOOD PAIRING: Main dishes featuring Red Meat, White Meats, Meat or Mushroom-based Pasta or Rice dishes.
