This exciting new neighbor to the Bolgheri big boys is making waves along the Tuscan coast. A Bounty Hunter Exclusive, it is an enticing blend, which shows ripe fruit aromatics accented by graphite and earth and a well-structured palate with gripping tannins.
Expressive flavors of black currant, plum, cedar, coffee and oak spice are allied to a firm, tannic structure. Starts out rich and complex, tightening up on the finish. Impressive, but needs time. Cabernet Franc.WA92
The 2016 Bolgheri Tenuta Meraviglia is a rich and darkly saturated wine with creamy dark fruit that feels soft and velvety from the first sip. This is a decadent red wine from Bolgheri with black fruit aromas of plum and black currant followed by spice, tobacco and campfire ash. I love the succulence and the generosity of this sunshine-driven wine. The blend is 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some 26,000 bottles were released. This estate is part of the Alejandro Bulgheroni Family Vineyards.
