Since Michele started his domain nearby Castagneto Carducci in 1983, he has been recognised as one of the leading producers from Bolgheri. Marrying the experience of his own vineyard with consulting positions in the area, for example, at Ornellaia amongst others, he became one of the founders of the Bolgheri DOC. With plantings of Sangiovese, Syrah and Teroldego alongside the more classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, he gained the reputation of being an original wine producer, almost an explorer. Very few producers can be considered at the same time father founders and innovators and we are extremely lucky to work with one of them.
The 2017 Cavaliere is 100% Sangiovese vinified in cement and aged in cask. Rich and dense in the glass, with terrific density and real presence, the 2017 packs plenty of punch. Dark fruit, scorched earth, licorice, lavender and cloves add to an impression of power and gravitas. 91 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinousmore
