Winemaker Notes

In this special rich vintage with extra soft tannins and gliceric mid palate we decided to increase the percentage of the Cabernet Sauvignon to focus more on classic spice notes and flavors. Of course as well will be increased the longevity of the wine.

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Very tightly wound, with a dense bed of tannins providing support for the black currant, black cherry, wild herb, mineral and earth flavors. Ripe yet lively, showing fine intensity on the fruit-, mineral- and tar-filled aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2040.
JS 93
James Suckling
A serious red that has the big, black fruit, fine oak, substantial, moderately dry tannins and polish that you expect from a modern, high-end Bolgheri wine. Long finish. Drink now.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a plump and generous wine that shows the exuberance, softness and richness of the vintage. The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore is teeming with dark fruit aromas that segue to spice, leather and cured tobacco. You get a pretty touch of balsamic herb as well with overtones of Mediterranean rosemary or garden herb. Castello di Bolgheri gets better and better each time I come back to taste a new vintage of this top-shelf wine. The blend in 2015 is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Inviting aromas of black-skinned berry, underbrush and a whiff of ginger lead the nose on this savory blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The structured, juicy palate offers ripe black currant, licorice and black pepper alongside polished tannins. Enjoy through 2024.

Castello di Bolgheri, Italy
Castello di Bolgheri Castello di Bolgheri Winery Image

The origins of Bolgheri Castle date back to 1200. Since then, it has been the property of the Counts of Gherardesca family. In the second half of the 1700s, restoration work and improvements were made to the building, and the cellars were built. In 1895, the castle’s facade was modified, with the construction of the tower and merlons as we still see them today.

Bolgheri Castle and its surrounding lands were transferred by hereditary succession to the current family of the Counts Zileri Dal Verme.

The farm extends around the Castle for an area of 130 hectares, 50 of which are covered by vineyards; the rest is made up of areas cultivated with 6,000 olive plants, sown grounds and woods. Both sides of the farm are adjacent to the famous cypress road extolled in the poetry of Giosuè Carducci.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
