Castello di Bolgheri
Bolgheri Castle and its surrounding lands were transferred by hereditary succession to the current family of the Counts Zileri Dal Verme. The farm extends around the Castle for an area of 130 hectares, 50 of which are covered by vineyards; the rest is made up of areas cultivated with 6,000 olive plants, sown grounds and woods. Both sides of the farm are adjacent to the famous cypress road extolled in the poetry of Giosuè Carducci.
Starting in 1997, the vineyards were planted with the principal varieties called for in the specifications for Bolgheri wines with the DOC (certificate of controlled origin) certification: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Bolgheri Castle’s vineyards are found on the outskirts of the village of the same name, facing southwest, and the rows, which are perpendicular to the sea, benefit from the afternoon wind during the hot summer days.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is a selection from the very best vineyards within the estate.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot, this is a young wine with up front fruit, and a broad bouquet. It is precise, elegant and extremely drinkable.
