“Lovely lavender and mineral character to this red with medium body, velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Extremely refined. Sage undertones to it as well.”
Wine Spectator: 93
“The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Sapaio is a rich and penetrating wine with a long sense of silky persistence. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in oak for 18 months. Some 20,000 bottles are produced. Initially, the wine feels crisp and delineated. Make no mistake, the power and the brawn creep up on you slowly with firm tannins and black fruit intensity at the back.”
The Wine Advocate: 92
“This is elegant and vibrant, boasting black currant, blackberry, violet, licorice and spice flavors. Balanced, with firm grip and a fresh finish that echoes fruit and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2030.”
