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
Racy plums and cherries with hints of dusty licorice and orange zest that extend to a bright, vibrant palate, full of juicy red berries and svelte tannins. This is juicy, linear and lively. 100% sangiovese. Delicious now, but can hold, too.

The 2019 Cavaliere is pure and floral with crushed roses, candied red cherry, and sweet herbs. On the palate, it is medium bodied and structured, with wild raspberry, dried dusty earth, and dried herbs. The tannins are present, and it is a clean and approachable style of red, with a hint of orange peel on the finish.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Cavaliere is a pure expression of Sangiovese that raises the Bolgheri banner high but does not quite live up to the complexity or depth of other expressions of the same grape from further inland in central Italy. This wine shows baked cherry and even a hint of sun-dried tomato with scorched earth and easy spice. The mouthfeel is simple and bright with complexity and some mild tea bag-like bitter flavors on the close. It is fermented in large oak casks and ages in cement for 18 months.

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.
