In the small village of Le Sondraie near Bolgheri, the San Felice winery team, which also produces excellent wines in Chianti Classico, Montalcino and nearby Maremma, was able to produce six hectares of the best vineyards a few years ago, called Bell'Aye, aye. The vineyards are located at 100-200 metres above sea level above the well-known Marina di Bibbona on the Tyrrhenian Sea, which is well known to many Maremma tourists.
The typical loamy-sandy soils are mainly used to grow the French Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties typical of Bolgheri. The south-western orientation of the vines brings many hours of sunshine during the day, which allows the late-ripening varieties to develop well. The sea, which is within sight, brings constant breezes, which aerate the vineyards wonderfully. The hilly, wooded landscape of the nature reserves in the northeast, behind the vineyards, brings clear cooling at night, even in midsummer. Wine lovers know that this offers ideal conditions for an elegant fruit development.
This is how Bell's wines stand out'Aja also characterized by very finely structured, elegant wines. However, with the oenologist Leonardo Bellaccini and the agronomist Carlo Salvinelli, the young and committed local team is also backed by a duo with decades of experience and experience. The wines are aged in French barriques with a maceration period of about three weeks followed by aging.
As brilliant as the wines already present themselves today, one can be curious to see how the development will continue here! SUPERIORE.DE
