A very spicy red, driven by herbal undertones that guide dark plums and dark cherries forward. Chewy and structured palate that remains rich and decadent. Pure sangiovese. Drink in 2023.

Michele Satta remains committed to the Sangiovese grape and may be the only producer in the Bolgheri appellation to produce a 100% expression of the mighty Tuscan grape. The 2016 Cavaliere pours from the bottle with a medium-dark appearance. The bouquet offers tertiary tones of leather and smoked bresaola followed by potting soil or tilled earth. This hot-climate expression shows a dark and savory side of Sangiovese. Only 6,000 bottles were made.
