From producers Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari, Baia al Vento (90% Merlot with small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot) shows ripe fruit, plum, blackberry preserves and cherry backed by cured meat, tobacco and dried rosemary. The wine is round and soft with bright points of acidity that keeps it balanced.
Beginning in 1999, the Folonari family began acquiring land in Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast, where they now produce three wines: a native white and two international-style reds. (more history)
