2014 Podere Sapaio Volpolo Bolgheri image

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Petite Verdot aged for 14 months in barrique, they make 80,000 bottles on average. Started the winery in 1999 from Venice and thus Massimo had to start his own legacy as the family was not in the wine business. This area is the Bordeaux of Italy and this wine is reminescent of Bordeaux with lots of dark currand and cassis berry fruit, notes of cigar box spice and fresh dark earth, nice complexity on the nose some black peppery spice coming out on the second day. A big and chewy wine on the tongue with layers of dark earth, tobacco spice and a good amount of dark berry fruit, a bit tannic right now but has great balance and depth of fruit. Finish 45+ Excellent +
