Bolgheri

Bolgheri Travel Guide

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.

The town’s mayor, Fabio Tinti, loves the area’s Casentino wool overcoats, sold here.
