Winemaker Notes

The Bolgheri Superiore “Piastraia” is a wine that incarnates the spirit of the Tuscan terroir. It is aged for 18 months in barriques and at least for 24 months in bottle and it expresses itself with notes of fruits jam and Mediterranean spices, noble woods and balsamic herbs. On the palate is structured, full-bodied, balanced and very persistent.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Michele Satta 2019 Bolgheri Superiore Piastraia is 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Sangiovese all aged in barrique for 18 months. The wine offers a quick note of sweetness with exotic spice mixed in with dark fruit and plum. There is a mild hint of green herb at the end. This is a pretty medium to full-bodied red that offers good freshness and never feels over-extracted.
JS 94
James Suckling
Sweet-spice, chocolate, anise and nutmeg notes to the cassis, blackberries and olives. A medium-to full-bodied, tightly structured red with silky tannins and savory plums in the middle. Better after 2024.
WS 93
Wine Spectator

Packs a rich, supple profile permeated by black cherry, blackberry, leather, iron and spice flavors. Sinewy in the end, courtesy of the dense tannins, yet food will mitigate the tannic impact in the near term. Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet and Syrah.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Piastraia is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot fermented in concrete and aged in barriques. It is aromatic with savory Mediterranean herbs along with cherry licorice, pine, and red flowers. Full-bodied and structured without being weighted, it has rich tannin structure and offers seamless notes on the palate of cherry with sweet and savory herbs. It has a lot of potential and I like it, but the tannic grip might need some time to soften.

In 1982 Michele started his own winery, one of the first in Bolgheri, withnewly acquired vines from his previous employer. In this famous region ofTuscany, Michele rapidly earned respect and became known quickly as a vigneron. Michele even worked as a consultant for other properties in the early 1990s, including Ornellaia at which time Michele planted many of their vineyards. Michele has always been the local expert on the great terroir of Bolgheri and this is why his wines have been so well regarded in Italy.

Michele is a father of six (an example of his traditional roots), a farmer and a winemaker. He is an uncomplicated, sincere and humble man with very clear priorities; family and vines. While he is a traditionalist, he is also a non-conformist. This deferential character, when combined with a deep dedication to perfection, balance in the vineyards and great attention to detail in the cellar, produces Bolgheri wines that communicate the amazing uniqueness of this man and his terroir. Walking with giants is no easy feat, unless you are Michele Satta.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
