    "Cavaliere" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

    Brilliant dark ruby, intense and inviting nose with a pronounced aroma of dark fruits, especially blackberry, followed by some liquorice. Firm and gripping on the palate with taut tannins, the Cavaliere shows his animating (Sangiovese) style in the course and keeps a good pressure until the long final. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sangiovese pure sorter, aged 24 months in used barriques: A bewitching nose of ripe berries and leather, also floral components; the base harmonious, the vife acidity and the tannin in balance, the finish to notes of fresh plums. "I like it with its elegant design. Vinum

    "Michele and Giacomo Satta have been producing this flagship Sangiovese from Bolgheri since the appellation's inception. Despite officially not being included in the DOC because of the use of 100% Sangiovese, this is still an iconic wine of Tuscany. From this year, researching the fragrance of fruit, they have started to vinify one-third of the harvest with whole clusters. The wine is pale ruby in colour, expressive of delicious and precise raspberry fruit with roasted nut toastiness. It shows great balance between its tight-knit structure of ripe tannins and crisp acidity." Decanter

    "Michele Satta remains committed to the Sangiovese grape and may be the only producer in the Bolgheri appellation to produce a 100% expression of the mighty Tuscan grape. The 2016 Cavaliere pours from the bottle with a medium-dark appearance. The bouquet offers tertiary tones of leather and smoked bresaola followed by potting soil or tilled earth. This hot-climate expression shows a dark and savory side of Sangiovese." Robert Parker

    "A very spicy red, driven by herbal undertones that guide dark plums and dark cherries forward. Chewy and structured palate that remains rich and decadent." James Suckling
