he 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. Since 2012 I decided to confer this wine the Superior mention because after almost 20 vintages of this label I am fully aware that the first intuition of this blend, well represents the name of Bolgheri.

The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Piastraia is an alluring, inviting wine that captures Michele Satta's style at its best. Ample and resonant, with superb richness, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and espresso all resonate in this super-expressive, pliant red. All the elements simply meld together effortlessly. This is a terrific look into what makes Bolgheri wines so compelling.

This red starts out with good intentions, featuring black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors that get ahead of the gritty, slightly rustic tannins. Those tannins catch up on the finish, leaving a lightly astringent feel that will likely always be present. Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2028. 3,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
