Intense ruby red in colour. The nose exhibits lovely fresh, crunchy fruit, enriched with mineral and spicy notes. The palate is medium bodied with hints of red berries. The elegant, silky tannins are wholly enveloping and velvety-soft. The finish is pristine, clean, and vivacious. It pairs effortlessly with a wide range of dishes such as grilled meats - especially Chianina beef - spit-roasts, ossobuco, charcuterie of wild boar, medium-matured and fully-matured pecorino cheese, and smoked ricotta. It is enhanced with pasta prepared with white meat ragout, pappardelle with hare. Serve at 16-18°C and uncork an hour before drinking.

This red leans toward the firm, dry side, featuring touches of bell pepper, green olive and spice that accent the main black cherry and black currant flavors. Taut and long, with refreshing acidity. Should develop well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2032.

There is a lot of meat on the bones of the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Seggio. The wine opens to spice and bramble with dark fruit nuances, surrounded by thick layers of spice, tobacco, tar and resin. This wine offers a specific and unique mouthful that is full and dense but also creamy and luscious. It makes a particularly glossy or shiny impact in terms of mouthfeel. The blend is 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot.
