In 1991 Michele Satta planted the first Vineyard with Merlot, Cabernet, Sangiovese, Syrah, to reaffirm the established expression of the Bordeaux vineyards, the dominant choice in Bolgheri, to win the favour of the new international market and with the will to express the Mediterranean character of the Tuscan coast with the best expression of elegance and complexity of Sangiovese and Syrah. The assiduous care of the vineyard, the manual harvest from the best parcels at the right time of ripeness, the separate vinification of each variety in small oak barrels, the aging in oak barrels for at least 18 months of the best selections and the average age of vineyards that is now over 20 years, give to Piastraia the prestige and the honour to win the mention of Superior
