Bolgheri Wine Tour
Driving along the Livorno coast you find the small but excellent zone
of Bolgheri, which now
holds a place of honor among Tuscany's most dynamic wine zone. This
is mainly thanks to the sub-zone of Sassicaia, where farsighted
bets were placed on Cabernet Sauvignon, which is one of the prestigiouse
reds whose introduction is generating a positive trend in wine production
harmonizing tradition and novelty.
The Bolgheri DOC lies in the municipal territory of Castagneto Carducci; vineyards cover about 375 acres.
