2016 AIA VECCIA WINERY “BOLGHERI SUPERIORE” SOR UGO

$44.00 $37.99 $37.99

There can only be one preeminent Tuscan Blend in the “under forty dollar range,” and in our shop Aia Veccia’s Sor Ugo Blend has been our most talked about and loved Tuscan Blend since we first offered the 2007 years ago.  It’s the wines showy, crowd-pleasing style and consistent superior quality that keeps us thinking about it long after the vintage sells out.  After all, the winery is located in Italy’s famed Bolgheri region and Aia Veccia’s vineyards are in the same elite neighborhood as Italian legends Ornellaia and Sassicaia, which both retail for hundreds of dollars per bottle.  At a small fraction of the price of its neighbors, Sor Ugo delivers exceptional quality-to-value and it has the scores to back it up…

On the palate the 2016 is stunningly concentrated and threaded with violets, sweet spices, graphite and blackberry.  Elevating for 18 months in oak and a year in the bottle before release, the 2016 checks in at nearly 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and enhanced with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  And the vintage? 2016 was another Blockbuster vintage in Tuscany, which many say rivaled 2015.  If you’re looking for a captivating, concentrated and charismatic Tuscan Blend that won’t cost you a fortune, this one is absolutely for you…

Description

2016 AIA VECCIA WINERY “BOLGHERI SUPERIORE” SOR UGO

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Sor Ugo offers thickly extracted aromas of blackberry preserves and cherry confit with smoke, tar and sweet spice. This is a full-bodied red (with 15% alcohol) that wraps thickly over the palate, showing rich density and concentration along the way. Campfire ash and hickory smoke appear on the close. The blend is 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged in barrique for 18 months. 93 Points
