This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black-skinned berry, cedar, plum and clove. The juicy palate offers black-currant jam, licorice and sage alongside velvety tannins. Enjoy through 2026.

The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso is a rich, explosive wine that embodies all of the natural richness and opulence of the year. Black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, plum, mocha, licorice, spice, leather and menthol burst from the glass in this exuberant, flamboyant red. Not a shy wine by any means, the 2017 possesses tons of intensity and volume in all of its dimensions. This is an especially heady wine, even by Bolgheri standards, and that is saying a lot! And yet all the elements are so well balanced.
