Michele Satta Rosso

Product description

This wine is the expression of the vineyard (about 20 hectares) Michele Satta planted in these last years, dedicated to his "Bolgheri" project, with an intention to improve the characteristics of this terroir for a red wine with great character and pleasure.

All the grapes are cultivated traditionally and with care, in a high-density vineyard (about 6,000 plants/ha) where I particularly respect the natural balance. During the harvest, perfectly maturated grapes are hand picked. Fermentation occurs without artificial yeasts, then manual submersions of the cap of the wine are carried out with pumping over procedures. After 12 months in barriques the wine is bottled and remains in our cellar for 6 months before being sold.  The wine can be aged for up to ten years.

Grape varieties: Sangiovese 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Merlot 20%, Syrah 10%, Teroldego 10%
