To describe a wine, it is necessary to decipher its origin - the landscape, the place, the environment from which it is born - in order to fully understand its nature. Villa Donoratico is a decidedly consistent and complex wine that never risks normality, demonstrating a character deeply linked to territory. Matured in oak, it is extraordinarily drinkable and faithful to its identity, year after year. A nose full of red fruit and a pleasant spice on the palate with notes reminiscent of licorice.

A ripe, plush version, featuring mouthfilling blackberry, plum and spice flavors. Firm and dense, with a line of tannins on the earth-tinged finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2027.

The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Villa Donoratico is a thickly concentrated wine that pours from the bottle with generous flavors of blackberry and plum that are woven together with spice, tobacco and campfire ash. You can feel the power and exuberance of the dark primary fruit in this warm vintage. However, it does not lack freshness and acidity, which are ultimately what brings the wine into balance. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot (aged in oak for 12 months).
