The origins of Bolgheri Castle date back to 1500, and has been the property of the Counts of Gherardesca family for some 30 generations now. The Castle was ‘remodeled’ a bit in the second half of the 1700s, with a few improvements to the façade again in 1895, but the castle and Estate has largely remained the same for over 500 years.
Countess Franca Spalletti Trivelli owns the Estate now, inherited in 1984, and husband Clemente Zileri dal Verme with son Federico lovingly tend the vines and manage the production of their Bolgheri Super Tuscan wines.
Castello di Bolgheri is a selection from the best vineyards around the Castle. The grapes undergo a very delicate treatment of pumping over and delestage, and remain in contact with the skins for a long period of time. The result is a more full bodied Bolgheri wine with interesting tannin structure, and one that can be cellared for an extended time.
