Thracian Valley / Red / Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Melnik / Sustainable
Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Melnik
Cracking value Bordeaux Blend from the Thracian Valley in Bulgaria. Super plush and bursting with berry fruit and sweet spicce this is a no brainer.
Notes on the Producer
Wine lover Edoardo searched high and low to find the perfect spot to grow Pinot Noir as well as Bodreaux Varietals in Bulgaria. The piece of land he chose is on the eastern side of the Thracian Valley. The Saint Ilia hills shade the area from the freezing Baltic winds while a natural lake nearby regulates the temperature, but Miroglio is no fool, he has had extensive tests and research done just to confirm his theories. He purchased the land in 1998 and by 2004 they had produced their first vintage.
Everything at Miroglio is done to the best of their abilities with state of the art equipment. This attention to detail also extends to the people involved with Miroglio bringing in the incredibly talented Alberto Le Rosa (ex Luciano Sandrone Barolo viticulturist) and Bulgaria's top lady winemaker, Desislava Baicheva, who both only joined the team as they could see the excellent potential of the wines having tasted the earliest vintages.
As the vines here age and the team gains more insight into the nuances of the Thracian Valley terroir, these wines go from strength to strength.
