TENUTA ARGENTIERA BOLGHERI SUPERIORE 2017
Region - Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
The tiny appellation of Bolgheri DOC is home to Tenuta Argentiera. Situated along the Tuscan coast, the property’s best vineyards are positioned on picturesque slopes overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. The estate is only 20 years old, unlike its illustrious neighbours- Ornellaia and Sassicaia, making it a relatively new player in the Super Tuscan category. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the wine was aged 14 months in barrique (new and old) and a year in the bottle before release. Argentiera’s Bolgheri Superiore 2017 is a wine of concentration and balance, with juicy ripe fruit, touches of rosemary, spice and silky tannins. This affordable Super Tuscan is ready to drink now or cellar for 10 years.
