Once known only as Super Tuscans, the wines of Bolgheri are shedding their old label and becoming recognized more for their terroir than their once-revolutionary origins.
The Bolgheri region is a wine region that runs parallel to the Tuscan coast in the province of Livorno, named after the town of Bolgheri. The fertile, alluvial soils are best for French varieties.
The Bordeaux trio goes into the majority of Bolgheri wines: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Blends may also include Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Sangiovese.
The first thing that will strike you is the famous Viale dei Cipressi, or Cypress Avenue, a straight road about 5 km long lined with tall, majestic cypresses that leads straight to the Castle of Bolgheri.
Tuscany Luxury Transfers will take through the best wineries of the area to taste the cult wines of the area.
