Let us taste the Sapaio Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C. 2012
Its identity forms part of the territory where it is produced and its name recalls an ancient Tuscan vine. The wine itself is made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 20% Petit Verdot grapes and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels. It is an intense ruby red in colour while also being intense on the palate. It immediately releases a fruity aftertaste that gives it its freshness. A rich and highly pronounced quantity of tannins ensure that this wine ages well and has a great potential.
About the winery: Podere Sapaio.
We are very obviously in Tuscany. Podere Sapaio is quite a small farm, situated between Castagneto Carducci and Bibbona, and mostly planted with native vines, though one of its main features is its use of experimentation. The unique characteristics of the area, lying between the land and the sea, have given an exclusive personality to the various vintages. The symbol of the farm is in fact a crown, in order to testify to the elegance and unparalleled features of the wine. Enthusiasm, as always, does the rest.
