Ripe and silky, this red exhibits plum, fruitcake, earth and tobacco flavors. It's harmonious and picks up enough structure to uplift the lingering finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024. 6,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
The 2017 Il Seggio is juicy and immediate. Crushed flowers, bright red berry fruit, spice and blood orange all resonate in the glass. There is a good bit of brightness to play off all that natural Bolgheri richness in this Merlot-based blend.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot carries aromas of black-skinned berry, Mediterranean brush and leather. The structured palate features blackberry jam, licorice and mocha alongside polished tannins.
