Michele Satta Piastraia 2010
Deep ruby-red color. Aromas of summer red fruit with fragrant notes of blackberry and blueberry, also sensations of summer green grass and hay. Explosive flavor mirroring the fruit perceived on the nose, with great depth of ever lively notes that makes it pleasant to drink. Serve with large meat or game dishes.
25% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah. In 1982 Michele Satta started his own winery, one of the first in Bolgheri, with newly acquired vines from his previous employer. In this famous region of Tuscany, Michele rapidly earned respect and became known quickly as a vigneron. Michele even worked as a consultant for other properties in the early 1990s, including Ornellaia at which time Michele planted many of their vineyards. Michele has always been the local expert on the great terroir of Bolgheri and this is why his wines have been so well regarded in Italy.
