Varvara Bolgheri 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes which arrive in the cellar are chosen on a selection table, and during the wine making process they undergo a very delicate treatment of pumping over and delestage. The wine remains in contact with the skins for approximately 20-25 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature.

There’s a hint of eucalyptus on the nose…something I noticed in many of the wines in the region.  Castella di Bolgheri is a fascinating spot.  The historic castle is worth a visit - learning about the lineage of the place was great fun.  Love the wines from Bolgheri!http://goodtaste.tv   Read less
