Cavaliere Toscana IGT

    • Description :

      Produced from selected Sangiovese grapes which are harvested at full maturation in the latter days of September. Destemmed and fermented in open wooden casks. Maceration of the skins for 20 days, with the cap manually pushed down 3-4 times per day. Following the pressing, the wine is transferred into 35 hectoliter oak casks for 24 months. The wine is then bottled without being filtered and remains in bottle in the cellar for approximately 1 year. Known as one of the best Sangioveses of Tuscany, it's also the pride of Michele Satta. He has personally selected the best plants and today Satta is the only producer in Bolgheri who loves the challenge of this native and unique grape. The focus in the vineyard is to obtain the maximum expression from the vine, while working toward a natural, harmonious equilibrium within the vineyard.

A full-bodied wine with tannins that are soft and elegant. The aftertaste has hints of licorice and chocolate with a core of fruit and tobacco. A wine of great elegance, lush and rich on the palate with refined aromas. Sensual and balanced.
