Michele Satta Piastraia 2011
Dense ruby red. Summer fruit with fragrances of blackberry and blueberry. Slightly herbally with a hint of summer hay. Explosive flavors–mirrors the fruit in the aromas, deep, dense, and accessible, fresh. Pair with flavorful meat or game dishes.
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.
