Sor Ugo is Aia Vecchia's flagship wine, a Bordeaux-blend Super Tuscan created by the prominent enologist Tibor Gal. It is named after Ugo, the first Pellegrini family member who started to work with grapes and wines a century ago (Sor is an old honorific, short for Signor). As the winery's most important and awarded wine, Sor Ugo represents the elegance and strength of Bolgheri. The wine is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, & Petit Verdot and is aged in 100% new French Allier oak barrels for at least 18 months as well as 12 months in bottle.Â
In the glass, the wine shows colors of red garnet accompanied by a bouquet of cherries, menthol and a hint of rosemary. On the palate, the wine is round and rich without being overpowering. It is spicy on the mid-palate and lively on the back-end, with flavors of black current, licorice and coffee, followed by a long-lasting finish that is slightly minty and boasts a juicy mouth-watering sensation.Serving suggestions: An ideal wine for red meat, game-based dishes and hard cheeses.
