Cont'Ugo 2012 - 1.5 Litre Bottle

Product description

Cont'Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Made entirely with Merlot, this wine offers aromas of ripe plum, dark berry and cooking spice. The firm palate delivers a core of black cherry alongside notes of black pepper, clove and anise. It's elegantly balanced with fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016–2025.
