Michele Satta's 2013 Bolgheri Superiore I Castagni is a savory and smokey interpretation from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Teroldego (aged in oak for 24 months). There is a sweet flavor of dark cherry or crème de cassis that does much to define the mouthfeel. Otherwise, you are also treated to leather, spice and dark tar. The wine feels robust at first but later reveals a mid-weight presentation with silky elegance.
