    "Castello di Bolgheri" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    This excellent Bolgheri Superiore is produced only in the best years. Deep dark ruby red, in the nose a rich fruit concentrate of cherry, elderberries, blackberries and some mint. On the palate already quite smooth tannins and a fine acidity. In the long elegant finish light roasted aromas. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Attractive bouquet of wild berry confit, pepper and vanilla; powerful attack, the tannins noticeable, in balance with the acidity, then much polish and finesse, the finish to notes of maraschino cherries and spices. Full-bodied and very successful." Vinum

    "The vineyards of this estate face the sea with a westerly exposure, an incredibly beautiful view from the Bolgherese road on a quite calcareous soil. The style here is pretty classic, sometimes more austere as in 2006, yet balanced in this vintage. Crimson in colour, it has a restrained nose of pencil lead, pepper and chocolate over brambly fruit flavours, supported by a firm palate with structured tannins and a chalky finish." Decanter

    "Made with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, this boasts aromas of black-skinned berry, vanilla and Mediterranean brush. The juicy balanced palate doles out ripe black currant, licorice, tobacco and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

    "A plush Bolgheri that shows lots of dark plums, cherry compote, vanilla and eucalyptus. Despite the initial, blockbuster impression, the palate is very polished, thanks to dialed-in tannins. Long but tangy finish." James Suckling

    "This is ripe and full of plum, blackberry, leather and spice aromas and flavors. Picks up a saline element while building to a long, fresh finish. Shows fine energy and length." Wine Spectator

    "Don't underestimate the intensity and generosity of the 2016 Bolgheri Superiore. The wine delivers generous tones of dark fruit, exotic spice and tobacco. On first examination, the palate appears to be more streamlined than it really is. However, it steadily takes on volume and girth as it warms in the glass, adding extra intensity and textural layering. Some 30,000 bottles were made, and this is no doubt the best Bolgheri Superiore I have yet tasted from Castello di Bolgheri." Robert Parker
