Description

Tenuta Argentiera stands in a magnificent patch of land in the Maremma that blends countryside and sea, suspended between woods and Mediterranean scrub at the heart of the small but prestigious Doc Bolgheri, a terroir dedicated to great red wines and synonymous with the celebrated “Super Tuscan.”
The name Argentiera carries significant meaning: it comes from the silver (“argento”) mines that once dotted the hills of this high lying area of the Maremma – a place rich in natural springs and healing waters.

The Estate is the closest winery to the Tyrrhenian coast and at the same time, the highest altitude of the entire Bolgheri territory, reaching 200 meters above sea level. 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. Poggio ai Ginepri – Bolgheri DOC – is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot vinified separately and extracted by soft pressing. Fermentation and maceration occur in stainless steel tanks for about 15-20 days at a controlled temperature never exceeding 28°C. Half of the wine is then put into 225-liter barrels made of used French and Hungarian oak, where malolactic fermentation takes place. The other half of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards, the final blend is made and, subsequently, the wine is bottled.

TASTING NOTES

A nice wine with defined structure and pronounced concentration, but with a beautiful softness and a remarkably clean finish. aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry and cooking spice. The straightforward round palate offers blackberry jam, vanilla and star anise alongside supple tannins.
