Wine AdvocateThere is a touch of extra softness and richness that reflects the warm and dry conditions of this vintage. The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Varvàra brings plump and rich primary fruit with blackberry, black cherry or plum at the front. There is a note of sweetness here that gives the wine a very accessible and immediate personality that would work perfectly with a Tuscan wild boar sauce over tagliatelle or a simple ragù. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Some 70,000 bottles were made.
