    "Castello di Bolgheri" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Deep dark ruby red, in the nose a rich fruit concentrate of cherry, elderberries, wild berries and in addition a pinch of pepper. On the palate wonderful harmony of supple tannin and fine acidity, plus subtle notes of maraschino cherry and spices. In the long lasting, very elegant finish fine roasted flavours. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Successful cuvée of a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon and some Franc: Intriguing bouquet of blueberry jam, liquorice and mint; on the palate very supple yet with character, the tannins spot-on, the finish persistently balsamic-dark berry. Convinces with its complexity." Vinum

    "Bright, rich garnet. In the nose fine spicy notes, noble blackberry, a breath underwood, then some incense, in the reverberation again fine fruit. Shows emphatically juicy on the palate with clear, salty fruit, slight pressure, stretches coherently across the tongue, juicy again on the back end, exciting food companion to grilled steak." Falstaff

    "This savory, full-bodied blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc features enticing aromas of woodland berry, underbrush and star anise. The concentrated, polished palate delivers black currant, licorice, tobacco and a touch of nutmeg alongside fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

    "Castello di Bolgheri is one of the most representative estates in Bolgheri. The winery is within the walls of the village, the vineyards around 70 metres above sea level, 'sopra strada', in the heart of the appellation. The 2017, deep crimson in the glass, shows great intensity on the nose with ripe cassis, incense and an almost Port-like minerality. Velvety and broad, it's a bit hollow on the mid-palate and austere on the finish, but produces a ripe and chewy wine with a savoury, mineral finish." Decanter

    "I had tasted this wine in a preview capacity one year ago. Now on the market, the Castello di Bolgheri 2017 Bolgheri Superiore hits the nail on the head. This estate is on a slow growth trajectory, showing results that deliver more satisfaction with each year that I taste them. It can't be faulted for being overripe or too astringent like some of its peers. Instead, the wine shows smooth fruit integration and solid background notes of blackberry, spice and cured tobacco, worthy of a sampler plate of wild boar charcuterie." Robert Parker

    "Wonderful depth and finesse for the vintage with a medium to full body and currant, tobacco and dried-earth character. It’s very polished with pretty, refined tannins and a long, long finish. Shows class and subtlety for the vintage. Drink after 2022, but already a joy to taste." James Suckling
