Mulini di Segalari Bolgheri DOC Rosso del Bosco Ai Confini 2010
This blend would be a locker from the Bordeaux region, were it not for that little bit of Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot 40%, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Syrah. This is a top Bolgheri, exclusively at The Fine Wine Shop, a small winery in Castagnetto Carducci, with a production that is sold for the most part just in Italy (a large part in their own enoteca in Florence).
Fermentation takes place in steel tanks. The wine then matures first 18 months in large oak casks of 23 hl, then a few months in cement talnks and tenslote bottle also a few months.
Relatively unknown, partly because they are not mentioned in any guide. Accidentally discovered by a discussion of Bolgheri wines in Decanter where this wine as well as the Superiore right at the summit ended.
