Vineyards for wine Syrah were planted in 1991. The choice of the class, despite the fact that in Bolgheri it is practically not used in the wine industry due to weather conditions, was due to the fact that Michele Satta wanted to better reflect the complexity of the flavors of the Mediterranean, to spend some parallels with the great wines of the Rhone.
Grapes are harvested at full maturity degree. Maceration and fermentation takes place in large wooden barrels and lasts about 20 days. Then the wine is poured into oak barrels that were previously on the third use, and kept 12 months, without filtration and then bottled. The wine can be consumed now, but after 2-3 years it will open new taste and aromatic tones.
"... My whole story is born out of a deep love for the land. I felt my duty and love for his two main women - Earth and wife Lyuchie that accompanied me from the very beginning of my choice. I would like to take risks and these attractions have become my life. And now, after a while, I look at their vineyards with love, feeling the deep unity "(Michele Satta).
Michele Satta decided to engage in winemaking and founded the farm in 1984. Prior to that, he was a simple farmer. Less than 10 years later, in the landmark 1990, he collected his first harvest from its own vineyards. Starting with the lease vineyards, after a short time Satta became their own and began to cultivate new varieties there, which, in his opinion, the best way reflect the full potential of the terroir of Bolgheri. He also experimented with the volume of barrels in which the wine is aged. Starting with a large barriques, which accommodates 225 hectoliters of wine, gradually began to use small - on 10 and 35 hectoliters. Satta believes that they allow to reveal the taste qualities of Sangiovese grapes.
"Wine - is not a product, but the result of the relationship. That's why it is unique and unrepeatable. He is a person that is born of the grape variety and it depends directly on the land on which he cultivates. Terms vintage - unpredictable: wet or dry, hot or cold - the year is never repeated. After the harvest, slow, combined with the experience of a man is born an amazing drink. We can not talk about the quality of the wine based on many parameters. It's like, what to speak of the dignity of women, but only by outward signs "( Michele Satta).
