Count Ugo Bolgheri DOC

42.90 CHF
Format (cl):

Exclusively Merlot grapes to interpret the territory of Bolgheri according to a new perspective. The vineyards, located at an altitude of between 45 and 60 meters above sea level of predominantly alluvial origin, give cont'Ugo a great depth and complexity while preserving the fragrance and exuberance of the fruit typical of Merlot.


The 2015 vintage was characterized by an average cool winter and a dry and mild spring. The sprouting, well ahead of last year, was followed by an equally early flowering. Initially the summer season recorded a major rise in temperatures to rebalance from the second half of August. Allowing the grapes to reach a perfect state of maturation. The harvest of the merlot parcels for Cont'Ugo took place between 9 and 23 September.


The selection was made among the best Merlot grapes from the 40 hectares of vineyards on the estate. After manual harvesting and careful selection in the cellar, the grapes were transferred to air-conditioned stainless steel tanks where alcohol fermentation and maceration took place, for a period of about 20 days. The fermentation temperature was managed according to the level of ripening of the grapes: some at lower temperatures to maintain greater aromatic freshness, others at temperatures of about 30 degrees Celsius to emphasize polyphenol extraction and structure. Different types of Merlot were obtained and were transferred to barriques separately. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrels (1/3 new) and is finished by the end of the year. After 8 months of French oak elevation, the best lots were assembled and put back in barrels for a further 4 months. At the end of this period, bottling was carried out. The wine was refined in a bottle for about 6 months before being put on the market.

Tasting notes

The nose is filled with intense notes of ripe cherry and blueberry well integrated with intriguing aromas of candied fruit and sweet spices. On the palate the wine is soft, balanced and persistent. The harmony and pleasantness of the fruity aftertaste are the elements that characterize it.
