Winemaker Notes

Intense primary aromas of fruit with prune, cherry and violets in harmony with vanilla and chocolate. Secondary aromas of leather, tobacco and damp earth. A full-bodied wine with tannins that are soft and elegant. The aftertaste has hints of licorice and chocolate with a core of fruit and tobacco. A wine of great elegance, lush and rich on the palate with refined aromas. Sensual and balanced.

James Suckling
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. Drink in 2023.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
D 92
Michele and Giacomo Satta have been producing this flagship Sangiovese from Bolgheri since the appellation's inception. Despite officially not being included in the DOC because of the use of 100% Sangiovese, this is still an iconic wine of Tuscany. From this year, researching the fragrance of fruit, they have started to vinify one-third of the harvest with whole clusters. The wine is pale ruby in colour, expressive of delicious and precise raspberry fruit with roasted nut toastiness. It shows great balance between its tight-knit structure of ripe tannins and crisp acidity. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029

Michele Satta Michele Satta Vine Winery Image

In 1982 Michele started his own winery, one of the first in Bolgheri, withnewly acquired vines from his previous employer. In this famous region ofTuscany, Michele rapidly earned respect and became known quickly as a vigneron. Michele even worked as a consultant for other properties in the early 1990s, including Ornellaia at which time Michele planted many of their vineyards. Michele has always been the local expert on the great terroir of Bolgheri and this is why his wines have been so well regarded in Italy.

Michele is a father of six (an example of his traditional roots), a farmer and a winemaker. He is an uncomplicated, sincere and humble man with very clear priorities; family and vines. While he is a traditionalist, he is also a non-conformist. This deferential character, when combined with a deep dedication to perfection, balance in the vineyards and great attention to detail in the cellar, produces Bolgheri wines that communicate the amazing uniqueness of this man and his terroir. Walking with giants is no easy feat, unless you are Michele Satta.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
