2018 Podere il Castellaccio Bolgheri Superiore DOC
This is the first vintage for the new Super Tuscan- Bolgheri Superiore from the tiny estate of Podere Il Castellaccio. The horse handpainted by a local artist on the label is not only the mascot of this powerful wine but helps describe the elegance and beauty of this 100% Cabernet Franc. Spending 12 months in French Oak and a further 12 months in Amphora, this is a wine with massive aging potential and yet beautiful drinkability even at its young age. A very small number (around 1200 bottles total) were made and are quite coveted by a local community of winemakers in Tuscany. We were lucky to get our hands on the few bottles that we did! A collectors dream and a wine that will be sure to trasnport you back to you Tuscan holidays all of those years ago...
