    "Argentiera" Bolgheri Superiore DOC 2017

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

    "Rich, dark ruby. Opens on the nose with notes of tobacco and some juniper, then lots of dark berry fruit, deep. Full and creamy on the palate, opens with grippy, pithy tannins, hints of licorice and wild berries, lots of sweet melting on the final." Falstaff

    "This is a beautiful wine that is climbing fast on a podium of the best in Bolgheri. The wine opens to dark and sultry fruit with blackberry and dried currant. Those fruit tones are followed by spice, campfire ash and potting soil. The wine works up great momentum on the bouquet, but we get those astringent 2017 tannins on the close." Robert Parker

    "Despite its position at the southern end of the appellation Tenuta Argentiera is one of the highest estates in Bolgheri, with vineyards between 120 and 240 metres above sea level providing the grapes for this wine. The altitude increases the night and day average temperature differences, improving phenolic ripeness. The conversion from cordon to guyot training is increasing the freshness of the grapes. In 2017 the winery decided to avoid the production of Ventaglio, the 100% Cabernet Franc cru. Argentiera, however, is really good, confirming the usual grace of the wine with more density and power. On the nose a funky note of merde de poule follows clean, dark fruits with buttery and slightly leafy aromas, while the firm yet ripe palate ends with a dark chocolate character." Decanter

    "This is a big and impressive wine. No denying. Full body with such depth and power. Crazy. An endless finish." James Suckling
