The philosophy of Podere Sapaio is to experiment and innovate: searching for new expressions of Bordeaux vines in Bolgheri, to produce wines that are strong, elegant and long lasting at the same time. The name Valpolo comes from an ancient Tuscany vine. It was purposely chosen to exalt the local origins of the product beginning with its name. The crown on the trademark for the Podere Valpolo is a tribute to the nobility of the wines and the land, which are always respected in the work that is carried out in the vineyard and in the cellar. Originally an IGT Tuscany in 2003, since 2004 Volpolo is classified as Bolgheri Rosso DOC.
This full bodied red wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. Fermented in temperature controlled tanks, ageing occurred in French oak barrels for 14 months and 6 months in bottle.
