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.
