Bolgheri D.O.C.

Bolgheri is, above all, a state of mind, a way of life, the rarefied atmosphere of a world thought to no longer exist. As in a mosaic, the single pieces which compose it are of precious materials and colors, but observing them one by one there is no perception of the overall picture. Nature here remains in a pristine state; woods dominate the hillsides which, running parallel to the coast, protect it from winter's worst cold. And, to the west, sparkles the blue of the sea, a sea which mitigates with its breezes the dog day heat of July and August. The vineyards, often wedged into the green of forest spaces or of ancient olive groves, dominates, together with the silent whistling of the wind, a landscape drawn discretely by the human hand. The population is warm and welcoming, smiling and happy to share with curious visitors the lovley life it daily leads. The hamlets and vllages have been well preserved, without any concessions to touristpleasing gimmicks: walking through their narrow streets, one immediately feels the presence of real and genuine life, human in its scale, free and stress and frenzy. Even culture has its proper role, with well calculated events never out of scale with local life. But the most precious pieces of all in this mosaic are the wines of this territory, wines which made the history of the recent Italian winemaking and which perfectly match the local cuisine. Fragrant wines, complex, generous, wines which give voice to the territory above and beyond the grapes of their blend. With them the mosaic is complete, a fascinating picture has been composed. Behind the label of that elegant and complex red, the natural and spontaneous joy of this part of Tuscany, of Italy, can be felt. The label evokes an entire world, a world which has always been part of our dreams, but which exists and is real. The visits to the vineyard, to the cellars, to the medieval hamlets, to the hillsides and to the sea, the tastings with the producers, make it quite clear to what extent this world exists and is real and concrete, one which can be touched and experienced. And to taste the wines of Bolgheri after a visit, after this experience, at home or anywhere in the world, will bring back the memories of these sensations, will breathe new life into them, will reawaken the desire to live them, as intensely as possible, once again.
