2017 AIA VECCHIA SOR UGO BOLGHERI SUPERIORE

$39.99 $39.99

Super Tuscan is an idiom used to describe a red wine from Tuscany that can include non-indigenous grapes like Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah. They became popular in the 80s and 90s when they started out-scoring wines in most other categories, and in 1992 the IGT classification was created. They can come from anywhere in Tuscany, but some of the best are from Bolgheri. Bolgheri is home to Italian legends Ornellaia, Sassicaia, and Tignanello. At a small fraction of its neighbors’ price, Sor Ugo also comes from Bolgheri, and it delivers extraordinary quality for the minimal cost.

Aia Vecchia’s 2017 Sor Ugo has a core of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon that’s enhanced with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Verdot. The wine team produced it in a charismatic style that’s densely concentrated, and as Jeb Dunnuck writes, it offers “outstanding balance.”

The Estate is near the Tyrrhenian coast, and their favorable microclimate combined with ideal soils produces stunning Tuscan wines. The wine is elevated for 18 months in oak and a year in the bottle before release, and if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out.

2017 AIA VECCHIA SOR UGO BOLGHERI SUPERIORE

“... Impressive notes of redcurrants, cassis, leafy herbs, and cedar all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, has a solid spice of acidity, outstanding balance, and should evolve for 10-15 years or more. It's an impressive Bordeaux blend from Bolgheri.”

“The 2017 Aia Vecchia Sor Ugo shows colors of red garnet in the glass, accompanied by aromas of cherries, menthol and a hint of rosemary. On the palate, the wine is round and rich without being overpowering. It is spicy on the mid-palate and lively on the back-end, with flavors of black current, licorice and coffee, followed by a long-lasting finish that is slightly minty and boasts a juicy mouth-watering sensation."
