2015 Bulichella Tuscanio Rosso

$45.00

Suvereto Sangiovese DOCG
The 100% sangiovese Tuscanio Rosso is a local version of sangiovese grosso, the famous grape of Brunello di Montalcino. Reds from this property have a little more body than wines from Bolgheri — think velvet instead of silk — with supple tannins that won’t overpower your dinner. Aged for a year in French oak barriques, this is a complex and detailed wine with ample dark fruit enhanced by notes of coffee, cocoa, hazelnuts, and pepper. You may notice a remarkable similarity to some Brunellos, but for a fraction of their price. This is a wine that can age, and which would benefit from decanting if you’re going to drink it with fall’s first roast or braised meat.

Bulichella Winery

BulichellaBulichella, an award-winning organic winery founded in 1983 in Suvereto. Suvereto is about ten miles south of Bolgheri, home to the super-Tuscan powerhouses Ornellaia and Sassicaia, and its terroir shares many of the same qualities as that storied region. For proof, look no further than their neighbors, Tua Rita, another star in the Tuscan firmament. This is an extraordinary area, producing wines of great power and finesse. Six of Bulichella’s wines received scores of 90 points or higher from James Suckling in 2019.

Azienda Agricola Bulichella began in 1983 with four families from northern, central, and southern Italy who shared a respect for nature and the environment, and an interest in organic farming. In 1999 the Miyakawa family — Hideyuki and Marisa along with their children — became the business’s owners. Today, Bulichella is an organic wine and oil farm and “agritourism” facility. The company continues its activity locally as well, with the Consortium of DOC wines of Val di Cornia, for which Hideyuki has served as president. As president, Hideyuki worked to obtain the DOCG label in 2012, to raise the image not just of the wine, but of the small medieval village of Suvereto and Val di Cornia as well. This unique location is what shapes Bulichella’s wines: the salty breeze from the nearby Mediterranean, the warmth of the Tuscan sun, the microclimate of dry sunny weather from April to August and the variety of precious minerals found in the soil. The vineyards extend into a medium-textured clay-heavy soil, and their management follows strict criteria, aimed at ensuring a high-quality production in full respect of ecological and environmental balances.
