      Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2018

      Exceptionally well done Bolgheri Rosso. His unmistakable character and the strong Tuscan identity can be enjoyed with all senses. A perfect wine in Satta's first-class style: powerful, dynamic, complex with noticeably fine tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Grenade. In the nose it has earthy aromas of red beets, very ripe cherries, plums, slightly rum pot, after aeration it tends to dark berry, cassis and liquorice. On the palate with gripping, slightly dry tannin, very energetic, strong pressure, rich body, still looks young, will blend better with time." Falstaff

      "Mid to deep crimson. Rather a sweet nose that appeals a little less to me than Satta's Sangiovese-dominated wines. But on the palate there's a lovely counterbalancing tang. There is real energy here – this is a wine that cries out for food. I'm won over – especially by the nervy balance of fruit, acid and tannin on the palate. With its sweetness, it could be just the thing for our Chinese takeaway tonight." Jancis Robinson

    • "Costa di Giulia" Bianco Bolgheri DOC 2019

      “Costa di Giulia” Bianco Bolgheri DOC 2019

      Independent, full of character - an almost exotic white wine from the noble Bolgheri DOC appellation. Smells of blossoms, peach and melon and shows the mineral richness of the ancient grape variety Vermentino and the wonderfully fresh gooseberry aroma of Sauvignon Blanc on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A white with bitter lemon and light flint on the nose and palate. Some stone, too. It’s medium-bodied with layers of fruit and a bright finish." James Suckling

    • "Piastraia" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      “Piastraia” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

      Piastraia fully corresponds to the classic image of a great Bolgheri Rosso Superiore. Made from a quarter each of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, it fills the glass with its intense scent of fruit and a hint of leather aromas. Powerful, concentrated and pure taste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very coherent wine of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese; multi-faceted bouquet of wild berries, licorice and dried flowers; grippy attack, the fine-grained tannins in perfect balance with the acidity, the finish long and linear. Also very successful in this warm vintage." Vinum

      "Rich garnet. Very spicy nose, underpinned with green pepper and light leather, lush cherry fruit, some plum, then chalky tones and ripe cassis again, layered and rich. Equally full-bodied on the palate, albeit with a fine drinking flow, compact, tightly woven tannin gives support, still young, very good foresight." Falstaff

      "The Michele Satta 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Piastraia offers intensity and bold fruit with plenty of rich blackberry, dried cherry and toasted spice. The is a full and generous wine from a hot vintage that does not hold back in term of fruit density or intensity. It would welcome some pork-filled ravioli. The soft tannins add to the wine's balanced full-bodied approach." Robert Parker

      "A full, rich red with beautiful softness and balance. It’s impressively tight and focused with polish and beauty. Layered and bright. Give this some time to come together, but very well done for the vintage. Better after 2022." James Suckling

      “Cavaliere” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      Bright dark ruby, intense and inviting nose with a distinct aroma of dark fruits, especially blackberry, behind it some liquorice. Firm and grasping on the palate with tight tannins, the Cavaliere shows its animating (Sangiovese) nature in the course of the wine and keeps a good pressure until the long final. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Marianova" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016

      “Marianova” Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016

      This is the second vintage of the currently only Bolgheri Superiore, which is produced apart from the classic French Bordeaux grape varieties. It consists of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Syrah. Two grape varieties that the Sattas have studied for several decades and whose quality has convinced us and the international critics for many years. Marianova combines great aromatic breadth with a gigantic drinking pleasure and at the same time underlines the great individuality of the winery like no other wine.

      Bright ruby red. In the nose a potpourri of spicy notes: spicy the Syrah and crisp the Sangiovese. Small red ripe berries and some blackberry essence mix with moist soil, smoke, tree bark and tar. This exceptional wine is carried by a bouquet of dark fruits and a fresh acidity, its impressive finish is infinitely long and powerful. SUPERIORE.DE

      "3250 bottles are pressed by this Sangiovese and Syrah selection in its second vintage: an enchanting bouquet of cherries and spices; a smooth course with very well integrated powerful tannins and invigorating acidity, shows elegance until the final. Vinum

      "Brilliant ruby violet with a slightly bright edge. A lot of present fruit, like mulberries and blueberries, in addition dark cherries, some spicy macchia smoke. A dense tannin with a sweet core, develops for a long time with a lot of pressure, tobacco in the final." Falstaff

      "Marianova is the first Bolgheri Superiore to be made without any Bordeaux varietals. Instead it's a 50/50 blend of Syrah and Sangiovese, the idea of Michele Satta’s son Giacomo, first produced in 2015. Ruby red and restrained, it's focussed on vibrant raspberry and cherry aromas layered with indian spice notes and a touch of leathery character. It shows a firm yet ripe tannic structure with chewy acidity and a great savoury finish of toasted notes and prunes." Decanter

      "Aromas of currants, crushed berries and walnuts, as well as chocolate. Full body, juicy tannins and beautiful fruit at the end. Big wine that needs time to soften. A blend of sangiovese and syrah." James Suckling

      "On first nose, the 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Marianova (equal parts Syrah and Sangiovese) shows savory and barbecue-like aromas with teriyaki sauce and hickory smoke followed by plummy fruit and blackberry preserves. There is a note of sweetness with lots of spice, leather and tobacco at the edges. Of Michele Satta's releases, this wine is the most unlike him in that it is the most contemporary and enriched. This is the second vintage of Marianova (the winery’s latest creation) to be released." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersMichele SattaTuscany | Bolgheri
    Michele Satta

    An important difference between Michele Satta and other big names like Ornellaia, Sassicaia or Grattamacco is that the determined and very likeable wine producer in Bolgheri runs the oldest winery that belongs to a winemaker. Satta founded its winery in Castagneto Carducci at a time when wine-growing in the Tuscan region was in its infancy and great successes were still to come. The path taken by the innovative winemaker was new in Bolgheri at the time. Thus he - supported by his wife Lucy from the very beginning in his decisions - not only focused on the international varieties Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, but also on the noble Sangiovese vine. The first harvest in 1990 showed how great their potential was. Nevertheless, this fascinating grape variety is still not very widespread in the still rather young growing area.

    Having purchased the land, bought the first vineyards in 1988, planted the first plants and set up a functional cellar, Michele Satta soon began to enlarge and enrich his initially still very small vine kingdom. In 1991 the top vineyards Castagni, Poderini, La Torre, Vignanuova and Costa di Giulia were added, as well as another ten hectares. All vineyards are managed by a team with a lot of personal dedication. They look more like a lovingly maintained suburban garden than an agricultural area. After the expansion, the wines of the bottle battery, which is now wide with nine products, steadily improved in quality. All the grape varieties are vinified and matured separately in the cellar before being used later for wines such as the Bolgheri Rosso Piastraia, often award-winning and consisting equally of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese.

    The Kreszenzen pressed by Michele Satta - some of them unpolished and rich in tannins - are perceived by wine lovers as authentic and expressive. Sometimes they are overripe, sometimes they are unripe. Hardly any wine shows a stylistic consistency over the years. Therefore, it is often difficult to tell which plant is the flagship of the winegrower who stands steadfastly by his convictions and sometimes swims against the current. If, on the other hand, the prices are the sole yardstick, the Piastraia and the Bolgheri Rosso Superiore I Castagni are the top products of the house. Last but not least: Wine and culture are closely linked, according to the efficient wine maker Satta. That's why the winery also becomes a small concert stage from time to time. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Meanwhile Michele Satta belongs to the renowned enterprises of the cultivation zone. His creatures understand well how to interpret the potential of the terroir in a stylistically original way."Gambero Rosso
