Podere Sapaio was founded in 1999. The 40 hectares that belong to the company are divided among the municipal areas of Castagneto, Carducci and Bibbona. The land. Situated on the quaternary deposits, from rough loose sandy beds to flood deposits with draining calcareous soils. The wines. Original Bordolese vines, which have gradually spread in the area over the last fifty years: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. There are also other smaller vines. The company also owns a few hectares of olive groves, with the Frantoiano, Moraiolo and Leccino varieties. The philosophy of Podere Sapaio is to experiment and innovate: searching for new expressions of Bordolese vines in Bolgheri, to produce wines that are strong, elegant and long lasting at the same time. The message?The names Sapaio and Volpolo come from two ancient Tuscany vines: Sapaia and Volpola. They were purposely chosen to exalt the local origins of the product beginning with their names. The crown on the trademark for the Podere Sapaio is a tribute to the nobility of the wines and the land, which are always respected in the work that is carried out in the vineyard and in the cellar. The two wines made are carefully followed by Carlo Ferrini, international famous wine expert. Both are Bordolese wines, and give two different interpretations of the year, coming from different selections of grapes which are grown in different vines.
