The Wine

On the Bolgherese provincial road, in the heart of the best production of Bolgheri wines, the Folonari family cultivates about 7 hectares of Merlot destined for the production of Baia al Vento. A vineyard characterised by soils rich in minerals and iron that give structure, elegance and abundance of aroma. The Merlot grapes from Vallone dei Messi are very pleasant on the palate and characterised by a dense structure and the typical sensations of ripe red fruit that evolve and enrich through long refinement times.

Tasting: Clear and lively purple-red colour, intense aroma characterised by hints of ripe cherry, currant, blackberry, chocolate and balsamic notes of tobacco. Dry, full-bodied and persistent on the palate with sweet and silky tannins. A complex and majestic wine.

First vintage: 2007
Shelf life: up 30 years
