Cont’Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.
TASTING NOTES: Cont’Ugo 2017 offers an intense ruby red color. The nose is imbued by notes of such ripe red fruit as raspberries and cherries along with sensations of sweet spices. On the palate, the firm tannic texture, silky and flowing, is well supported by a pleasurable freshness. Cont’Ugo is a balanced wine with a pleasurable persistence and length and much drinking pleasure.
AWARDS: Wine Spectator - 92/100. 2017 vintage comes giftboxed.
