Varvàra in honor of the Baronessa Varvàra Wrangel, wife of Count Ugolino della Gerardesca, great grandfathers of Federico Zileri Dal Verme, the owner of Castello di Bolgheri.
The first vintage produced was 2005; in any vintage it is elegant and refreshing of minerality, in other softer and full bodied. The vintage 2016 keeps the fresh fruit touch and also shows the complexity and concentration of a high quality wine. The richness in mouth is balanced through delicate but straight tannins. Best care in every step of the production, from vineyard through cellar till bottling and storage. 2016 sealed with the new Black label.
From this vintage we have introduced the Cabernet Franc that seams the ideal partner in marriage with Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot. The bouquet turns to more spicy-refreshing notes, on same full-bodied exciting taste.
Wine SpectatorThough tightly packed and supported by a dense matrix of tannins, this offers appealing purity of the black currant and blackberry fruit. Concentrated yet lively, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2035. 7,500 cases made.
