The wines are generally based on a blend of Cabernet (both Sauvignon and Franc) and Merlot, often accompanied by Syrah, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese sometimes. In the last years the number of single variety cru, made with the three main grapes, is increasing. We are always dealing with intense red wines with a dark ruby, often impenetrable, color and with a very important aging ability. The aromas are characterized by black berry fruit, ripe and sweet, with balsamic notes of Mediterranean brush, typical of the Bolgheri terroir. On the palate there is a striking suppleness and softness; the sweetness of the fruit, perceptible on the mid-palate, is always freshened and by a tonic acidity and by a ripe, dense tannic texture, with an excellent length. Even when the structure is a powerful one, the wines, for this reason, are always balanced and harmonious. Just below the level of Bolgheri Sassicaia, Bolgheri Superiore, and the great IGT wines we find Bolgheri Rosso. These are wines which give exceptional drinking pleasure – wines which are soft, elegant, and ripe in character, less demanding and ambitious compared to the "Superiore" category, but always capable of accompanying, with much pleasure, flavourful dishes of red meat and game. It is important to note that a good part of the Bolgheri vineyards are still relatively young. This means that the quality level of the current production can only continue to improve over time with a greater vine age. It is for this reason that the international wine press unanimously maintains that Bolgheri has a "giant" potential yet to express.
