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. Pure sangiovese.

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. Only 6,000 bottles were made.
"It’s our Sangiovese selection in the estate vineyards, harvested at full maturation. It is fermented in 30 hl oak open vats and maceration is completed with the soft manual submersion of the cap and with pumping over procedures for fifteen days. In the vineyards great care is given plant by plant, following each plant’s productive balance to express the best qualities of this grape, the symbol of Tuscany, for its elegance and nobility." -Winery
