There are nearly 40 wine producers in Bolgheri today.
A good example is Aia Vecchia owned by the Pellegrini family, who have grown grapes in the region for several generations.
Their entry-level wine, Lagone, entices with scents of dark berries, fresh herbs, anise and mocha.
It’s ripe, generous, and focused on the palate, earth notes frame the lush berry fruit and soft tannins carry the falvour onto the finish.
SorUgo, a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot – is even better.
The wine is beautifully balanced and a pleasure to drink. With hints of spiced plum, black berry, and mint that intertwine on the palate.
It’s a good way to experience the uniqueness of Bolgheri at a great value
