Il Seggio is an intense ruby red color. The nose offers nice fresh and
crunchy fruit, enriched with mineral and spicy notes. The palate
is medium bodied with red berry notes. The tannins are elegant,
silky, enveloping and very soft. The finish is precise, clean and
lively.

  • The Seggio river is the largest watercourse in the municipality of
    Castagneto Carducci. Its source is up in Sassetta’s metalliferous
    hills, an area that was already well known in the Etruscan period,
    and is extremely rich in underground deposits of ferrous
    minerals.
    It cuts across the entire area of Bolgheri and its alluvial debris
    enrich the characteristic clay soils with precious large pebbles,
    thus ensuring excellent drainage of the soil. This Bolgheri Rosso
    is produced with the typical varietals, Merlot 40%, Cabernet
    Sauvignon 30%, Cabernet Franc 20% and Petit Verdot 10%,
    carefully harvested and vinified to ensure density and
    concentration but also creating a very fresh and easy-drinking
    style of wine. In the glass, one can immediately grasp the
    impassioned enthusiasm and attention to the detail that we
    dedicate to this wine, which makes its debut with vintage 2014.

    Varietals: Merlot 40%, Cabernet

    40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc. Deep black-red in color, with earth, complex aromas in which notes of copse and warm stone mingle with fine leather and sun-warmed plums: classy and refined. It's deep, dark, vivid and long on the palate, with supple yet ample tannins; the bright fruits shade into laurel and thyme, and that warm-stone finesse is there on the finish. Beautifully crafted Bolgheri. 2018-2030.
