2019 Michele Satta Piastraia Bolgheri Superiore
The Bolgheri Superiore “Piastraia” is a wine that incarnates the spirit of the Tuscan terroir. It is aged for 18 months in barriques and at least for 24 months in bottle and it expresses itself with notes of fruits jam and Mediterranean spices, noble woods and balsamic herbs. On the palate is structured, full-bodied, balanced and very persistent.
James Suckling, 94 points
Sweet-spice, chocolate, anise and nutmeg notes to the cassis, blackberries and olives. A medium-to full-bodied, tightly structured red with silky tannins and savory plums in the middle. Better after 2024.
Wine Spectator, 93 points
Packs a rich, supple profile permeated by black cherry, blackberry, leather, iron and spice flavors. Sinewy in the end, courtesy of the dense tannins, yet food will mitigate the tannic impact in the near term. Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah. Best from 2024 through 2035.
The vineyard which produces this wine was planted in 1991 with Merlot, Cabernet, Sangiovese and Syrah with the intention of expressing an affirmation of the highest quality from the Bordelaise Varietals planted in Bolgheri, combined with the ability of elegance throughout the Tuscan Sangiovese and the complexity of the Mediterranean Syrah.
