Things to do in Bolgheri
The town’s mayor, Fabio Tinti, loves the area’s Casentino wool overcoats, sold here.
Stop in at Caffé della Posta, on the main square, to try one of Bolgheri’s reds: first produced in the 1980’s, these wines now rival French Bordeaux.
This pioneering Bolgheri estate makes Tuscany’s most famous wine, the Cabernet-based Sassicaia.
The Cabernet-dominated Ornellaia has the big name, but the lush, all-Merlot Masseto is the collector’s prize.
