Critical Acclaim

JS93 James Suckling
Aromas of currants and sweet tobacco with some cedar undertones. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins. Lightly chewy mouthfeel, yet so attractive. Give it a year or two to soften. Better after 2021.
WS93 Wine Spectator
This red leans toward the firm, dry side, featuring touches of bell pepper, green olive and spice that accent the main black cherry and black currant flavors. Taut and long, with refreshing acidity. Should develop well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2032.
V93 Vinous
The 2016 Seggio is a classic Bolgheri wine that brings together the fruit intensity of Syrah with the brilliant top notes of Cabernet Franc, a super-appealing combination, in my book. Sumptuous, racy and forward, this resonant super-expressive red is endowed with tremendous class. The 2016 offers notable depth and finishes with terrific freshness. I loved it.
RP92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There is a lot of meat on the bones of the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Seggio. The wine opens to spice and bramble with dark fruit nuances, surrounded by thick layers of spice, tobacco, tar and resin. This wine offers a specific and unique mouthful that is full and dense but also creamy and luscious. It makes a particularly glossy or shiny impact in terms of mouthfeel. The blend is 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot.
D92 Decanter
Rich, full-bodied, fleshy and glossy. This is a fine Bolgheri wine with quite a lot of showy character. Attractive wood is a little too evident at the moment, but will fully Integrate in 12 months. Despite its 14.5% alcohol, this is light on its feet. Very good purity here.
