Product description

The Argentiera estate is situated on the coast of Alta Maremma, about 100 km west of Florence in the DOC appellation of Bolgheri. The estate is part of the historic Tenuta di Donoratico dei Serristori, an influential Florentine family that in 1512 acquired this land from the Medici family. Today this property is owned by Corrado and Marcello Fratini, well known entrepreneurs from Florence, and by Marchese Piero Antinori. The estate is planted with specialized vines all of which have the appellation DOC Bolgheri. The vines have an average age of 4–5 years and are situated on a plateau at an elevation of 150 to 200 meters above sea level, the highest altitude level in Bolgheri.  Argentiera’s vineyards, located only 2 km from the Tyrrhenian Sea, benefit from breezes that provide consistent ventilation to the vines. They are surrounded by verdant macchia mediterranea, Mediterranean underbrush. Soils of various compositions are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah - international vines very much representative of the Bolgheri area. In fact, here, these vines assume their own character and reach proven elevated quality standards.

Rich, opulent, and forward on fruit. Punches above its weight for body, structure, and density. A full bodied, powerful red from Bolgheri that many Super Tuscans aspire to be.

93 Points - James Suckling

Fresh and fruity with herbs, such as basil and parsley, complementing the currants and berries. It’s medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a crisp finish.

90 Points - Wine Spectator

A combination of black currant and black cherry fruit and cedar and iron notes mingle in this supple red, which is balanced and juicy, with fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
