Natalie's Score: 91/100

Produced by Winemaker Michele Satta. An intense medium-bodied red wine blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah aged in oak for one year and a half. Look for black cherry, black plum skin, blackberry, fresh and dried herb, spice and dried pink florals smooth and with refreshing acidity on the palate. Enjoy now and for the next 10 years.

Food pairings: mushroom risotto, vegetarian lasagne, veal Parmesan.

Reviews and Ratings

From Bolgheri in the Tuscany wine region, Michele Satta Piastraia 2016 is a full-bodied Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah red wine blend with zesty, red berry compote, dried cherries, spiced plum, smoky dried herbs, cocoa and cracked pepper flavours on the palate. Pairs well with hearty beef dishes and grilled game sausages. Enjoy now and for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
