Super Tuscan fans, we have the best-kept secret in Bolgheri!

April 27, 2023

The hamlet of Bolgheri is a tiny area in Tuscany known as the premier wine-producing region for Super Tuscans.  

Wedged between two Super Tuscan titans, Sassicaia and Ornellaia, Castello di Bolgheri rivals these benchmark producers (which cost $200+ per bottle) at "a very attractive price point." Wine Advocate

Castello di Bogheri Varvara Rosso has some of the finest terroir DNA.  

It is a name to know and a wine to have among your Super Tuscan favorites. 

Cassis, deep red cherry, raspberry, and violet notes frame this Super Tuscan, which shares borders with both Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Textured, sweet, dusty tannins lead to additional notes of leather, tobacco, and tilled soil. Underbrush and earth create a Bordeaux-like finish with distinct Tuscan terroir. The finish is long and makes for a tremendous food and wine experience - especially given the price.

Varvara Is The Best Kept Secret In Tuscany

In addition to Sassicaia and Ornellaia, you can add Castello di Bolgheri to your list of heavyweight producers. At 1/5 the price of the more recognized Tuscan titans, this under-the-radar red is a must-have!

A classic Bordeaux blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, Varvara can be enjoyed with grilled cuisine, hard cheeses, or even better, fresh pasta and your favorite bolognese recipe.

Black fruit, pressed rose, earth and spice are carefully woven together. All elements are in place, and the wine is available at a very attractive price point."


“Warming notes of black plum, tea leaf, and wooded earth.”

Jeb Dunnuck • 93 / 100

"The 2020 Varvara is potent with aromas of pine sap, dried black cherry, leather, and menthol that are followed by a medium to full-bodied red, with a gentle texture and warming notes of black plum, tea leaf, and wooded earth."
