Bulichella - Montecristo 2015
Bulichella - Montecristo 2015 (9O TSW)
During Vinitaly I had the opportunity to try the wines of Bulichella. This was also the moment they presented their new labels. Now in August I will visit the Bolgheri and Maremma region so mabye also this winery.
The Montecristo 2015 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
In the glass a dark ruby red color.
On the medium+ nose aromas of dark plums, blackcurrants and dark cherries with hints of sweet spices, herbs and tobacco.
On the palate medium+ bodied with concentrated notes which are a recall of the nose with cedar and cassis hints. Very nice harmony, freshness and elegance in the glass with fine grained tannins. Will get more points within some more years.
The company, born from a project of rehabilitation and social reintegration, has been in the hands of Hideyuki Miyakawa since 1999, who came to Japan with the motor from Japan for the Olympic Games and subsequently became one of Giugiaro's most famous designers. Bulichella Suvereto Docg Montecristo 2015 is a wine that was strongly supported by Miyakawa, who proudly presented his new label as a result of a collaboration with oenologist Luca D'Attoma and Andrea Lupi.
All the new labels have symbolic signs to their family, winery and traditions. The return of D'Attoma, who had already worked with Bulichella at the start of his career, and the birth of the new labels presented at Vinitaly 2018, mark the strengthening of the company that also led to the birth of the new Reserve.
