Bertinga, Volta di Bertinga, Toscana 2016

Bertinga

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drink To: 2030

Created from 100% Merlot, Bertinga’s 2016 Volta shot onto the international stage, seeing it ranked the “best Merlot tasted in Italy” by judges at Gambero Rosso’s 2020 Tre Bicchieri. Featuring the brooding traits of violet, blueberry and black olives, this represents a full-bodied, lip-smacking red, that draws on Merlot’s inky, seductive character. Its soils comprise the heavy limestone and rich clay that is so often associated with Chianti Classico.

Established in 2015, but only making its first debut in 2020, Bertinga is an emerging Tuscan estate whose reputation is on the rise. Named “Best Emerging Producer” in the 2022 Guida Essenziale Vini d’Italia, the Tuscan winery has hit the ground running since its first vintage and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Producing only 5,000 cases per vintage across their entire portfolio, Bertinga represents an exclusive estate, whose wines are both hard to seek out and highly sought-after. Don’t miss the chance to bag yourself a hidden Tuscan gem.

James Suckling

This is a pure merlot with violets, blueberries and hints of minerals and black truffles. Black olives, too. Full-bodied, yet so tight and polished with a reserved and agile mouth feel. Linear and racy. Superb quality for this first released vintage. Try after 2022.

This young and nervous Merlot has everything going for it except that it needs some time in the penalty box before its ready to drink. Also touch more ripeness on the fruit from the start would have made it even better. The Bertinga 2016 Volta di Bertinga is a tight expression that should be permitted a few years to unwind and flesh out. The wine already offers good acidity and tart berry flavors with sour cherry and raspberry. 10,890 bottles were released along with some larger formats from a 2.5-hectare site.
