Tasting notes of the wine "Bolgheri Superiore 2016" by Castello di Bolgheri
It has an impenetrable ruby red color, the nose spreads wide with pleasant nuances of blackberries and red currants which are contrasted by darker spicy notes and boisé of black pepper, nutmeg, coffee and cocoa allusions. On the palate it confirms the olfactory suggestions by embellishing them with a thick yet lively tannic texture, but perfectly balanced by an average acidity that gives balance and freshness to the drink. Excellent elegant closure and long persistence. Aged for 14-18 months in barriques and 8 months in bottle.

Castello di Bolgheri is located in the municipality of Castagneto Carducci, in the province of Livorno, an imposing manor that rises scenically at the end of the famous avenue of the Cypresses, which the poet Gesuè Carducci praised in the famous poem "Davanti a San Guido". The Castle currently owned by the Conti Zileri Dal Verme family, but once belonging to the Conti della Gherardesca family, on several occasions, from the thirteenth century until 1895, was restored and improved both for the palace and later for the construction of the cellars. All this has decreed in addition to a renewal of structures and business then, an accumulation of styles, from Gothic to neo-Gothic passing through the Renaissance.
