    "Argentiera" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Rich, noble cuvée from the winery of the same name: aromas of red fruits, a light hint of roasted coffee and animal notes, an excellent tannin structure and a beautiful acidity give the "Bordeaux from Bolgheri" its exceptional independence and elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Classic Bolgheri blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged 18 months in small woods: A smart bouquet of pepper, maraschino cherries and blueberries, also vanilla; a precise course with a balanced tannin-acid structure, the finish on notes of hot stone, dark berries and herbs. Should mature." Vinum

    "Sparkling dark ruby red. A lot of crunchy, dark berry fruit, cassis, elderberries and blackberries, a little dark tobacco gives tension. Full and close to the palate, opens with dense tannin, runs as if on rails, full finish." Falstaff

    "Rich, with black currant, plum, loamy earth, vanilla and toasty oak spice aromas and flavors, backed by a spine of dense tannins and vibrant acidity, lingering with ample fruit, herb and spice notes." Wine Spectator

    "Finally Argentiera returns to excellence, following several years of wines falling below expectations due to various changes. The estate is located at the southernmost border of the appellation. In 2016, possibly because of the high percentage of Merlot in the blend, the wine shows great complexity from straw notes and earthy tones in a sort of Right Bank style, with meaty cassis fruit and a slightly leaner body full of finesse. The tannins in this vintage are almost silky from this higher altitude part of the appellation, at 200 metres above sea level." Decanter

    "Love the complexity to this with lots of rosemary and lavender that complement the currant and violet character. Full-bodied, yet extremely polished and tight on the palate. The tannins are ever so fine. Extremely long and beautiful. Another excellent wine, after the superb 2015." James Suckling

    "This is a dark Tuscan red that is beautifully elevated, thanks to the extremely elegant and buoyant quality of the aromas. They lift gracefully from the glass with light-footed, almost fleeting character. However, don't underestimate the power and the concentration of the wine, because this vintage delivers both with abundance. I've had my eye on this estate since the vineyards were first planted some 20 years ago, and there is no doubt that this vintage brings Tenuta Argentiera into a new era as a Bolgheri protagonist." Robert Parker
