Description

Seventy-five hectares planted to vineyards bordered by avenues of ancient maritime pine and olive trees, a portion of what was once the immense Tenimento di Donoratico, a former feudal possession of the Florentine Serristori family. Italian soils are classified according to multiple soilscapes that act as references for all agricultural assessments. Argentiera Estate comes under “terraced hills on pre-dominantly marly-pelitic formations” and “hill soil areas with substratum consisting mainly of coastal wind sand deposits”. The peculiarity is in the exposure: the vineyards line a ridge sheltered by the for-est that faces the sea to the east. This guarantees a continuous movement of winds coming from the coast, which allows for airiness and an average temperature 2° less than the lower-lying areas.

TASTING NOTES

Intense ruby red with shades of purple. This wine offers fruity aromas of plum, blackberry and cassis. A spicy component of black pepper, nutmeg and cloves also dominates, while elegant notes of balsam-ic, bay leaf, mint, eucalyptus and cypress float on the nose. The palate provides intense fruit defined by plum and blackberry, with excellent body – delicate and elegant.
