2009 Castello di Bolghieri Superiore
93 Points - Wine Spectator
The sweet black currant and black cherry fruit flavors are framed by cedar, licorice and saline mineral elements in this rich, supple red. Displays plenty of structure, with the firm tannins buried by ample flesh. Fine length. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,650 cases made.

"I like the aromas of walnuts and blackberries with hints of coffee beans. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a delicious sweet berry aftertaste. Delicious now. But will improve with age in the bottle.

Castello di Bolgheri enjoys some of the most coveted vineyard sites that are located a stone’s throw away from the Bolgheri castle tower. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and it delivers black fruit aromas, backed by wet earth, button mushroom and leather notes. It feels plush, yet structured.
