Giorgio Bartholomäus is the result of a careful selection of only Merlot grapes grown on a plateau at 200 meters above sea level. It is one of the few mono-varieties produced in the Bolgheri area.
The aging and the particolar organoleptic qualities, have given rise to an elegant wine with great personality, broad, deep and intense to the palate.
Intense and compact ruby red colour.
The first impression is of sweet spiciness followed by fruity hints reminding blue- and blackberries. The expanding bouquet shows well integrated roasted aromas of coffee beans and wet tobacco ending with an idea of saffron.
On the palate it is juicy and elegant with creamy and silky tannins offering a full-bodied and pleasant powerful sensation. At the taste are emerging dark, perfect ripened, wooden berries combined with balsamic notes, which together with the mineral freshness are offering a perfect balance beside a long lingering and fresh aftertaste.

Climate The winter 2010 was particularly cold with low average temperatures until the End of March, which allowed the vines to have the necessary growing rest. Mid of March we had a heavy snowfall and also spring was colder than usual with a lot of rainfall until the month of May. This seasonal development brought to a delay in blossoming and veraison and, as a consequence, slower plant growth too. The temperature only rose in June to reach a seasonally appropriate average but with high temperature excursion between day and night what assisted the development of aromatic flavours. July was a hot month with a lot of sunshine and no rainfall, what allowed the correct development of the pants, while August brought about 70 mm of rainfall but remaining within the maximum temperature of 32° C.
Vinification The fermentation and maceration in contact with the grapes took place in concave stainless steel tanks for about 28-30 days at a controlled temperature around 28/30° C. The wine was then transferred into 225 l French oak barrels (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation was completed.
Aging Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (Allier and Troncais). Afterwards the wine remained for a further fining in bottle at least 12 months before its release on the market.
