Fabio Motta - Pievi Bolgheri Rosso 2016
Fabio Motta - Pievi Bolgheri Rosso 2016 ( 88 TSW )
Despite the youth of this rosso it is already nice to drink. Blend of 50 % Merlot, 25 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Sangiovese.
In the glass a dark ruby red color.
On the nose smoky blackberries, cherries with hints of rosemary, sandalwood and black pepper.
On the palate dry, medium++ bodied with pleasant acidity and medium+ tannins. Flavours of plums, dried blackberries, earth and black pepper. Nice finish. Will retaste in two years.
Even though the Fabio Motta winery is young, it lacks nothing in passion, drive and experience.
Motta is the realization of one man’s dream, Fabio Motta, who founded the winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines that were planted in 1997 ( next to Michele Satta ) within the Bolgheri DOC. The position was excellent: overlooking the sea, at the feet of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with a south-western exposure.
But Fabio Motta was no newcomer in Bolgheri. He worked for many years with esteemed Bolgheri producer Michele Satta, whom is now, in addition to being both his friend and
mentor, also his father-in-law.
The wines of Fabio Motta respect and reflect the characteristic traits of the Bolgheri terroir, interpreted within the unique frame of each vintage. Fabio likes to say that the two main ingredients of his wines are fruit and freshness. He considers himself no more than a facilitator. It is the land, the grapes and the weather that shape the personality of his wines.
