 “Marianova” 2017, Bolgheri Superiore DOC – Michele Satta

“Marianova” was born in Bolgheri, a hamlet of Castagneto Carducci, in the province of Livorno, in Tuscany. The peculiarity of the Bolgheri Doc, established in 1984, consists in the fact that it includes an area of ​​land overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west, which remains surrounded by the hills on the remaining cardinal points, just as a theater looks at the stage.
Marianova is the first experience of the second generation Satta, a combination in equal parts of the best Syrah and Sangiovese grapes.
The grapes that majorly marked the Bolgheri experience of its founder, Michele Satta, were used, bringing to light an absolutely new product for this area: Marianova is the first Bolgheri Superiore that does not include any Bordeaux grapes in the blend.
Through Syrah and Sangiovese, we want to express all the brilliance and harmony of this Mediterranean place, which knows how to give wines of very rare depth and complexity without relying on concentration and stratification.
When tasted, it gives a complex and strong sip, marked initially by a malolactic fermentation in barriques and, subsequently, by the stay for 18 months in amphora. On the palate it is full-bodied, round, with well-integrated tannins and a long persistence.
With an intense ruby ​​colour to the nose, it immediately reveals itself to be broad and rich; it is expressed with dominant hints of small red fruits, vegetal notes and hints of spices and tobacco.
