Bolgheri became an internationally known region following an event in 1974 arranged by Decanter where a 6-year-old Sassicaia won over an assortment of Bordeaux wines. Prior to this, the Bolgheri region had relatively anonymous producers of ordinary white wines and rosÚs.
Due to the particular characteristics of the soil and micro climate (sunny, dry and moderately windy) the grape varieties of Bordeaux origin tend to thrive here, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
This is the main red wine from this estate in Castagneto Carducci. Nestled in the hills overlooking the ocean in Bolgheri, the Alfeo family craft this fine red from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc from their oldest vineyards.
