Overview

The philosophy of Podere Sapaio is to experiment and innovate: searching for new expressions of Bordeaux vines in Bolgheri, to produce wines that are strong, elegant and long lasting at the same time. The name Sapaio come from an ancient Tuscany vine. It was purposely chosen to exalt the local origins of the product beginning with its name. 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.

Reviews

Wine Spectator - James Suckling - 93 points

Dark-colored, with loads of ripe berry, vanilla, coffee and blackberry aromas that follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big, juicy tannins and a long, rich finish. A very New World style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2011.
