Tenuta Argentiera Bolgheri Superiore 2012
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
Argentiera, our Doc Bolgheri Superiore, is a wine with a rich and silky taste whose grapes come from the most dedicated vineyards of Tenuta Argentiera. The long fining in Frenc oak barrique, the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the unique terroir of Tenuta Argenitera, make this wine one of the highest expressions of the Bolgheri Area.
Deep bright ruby red. On the nose, it expresses complex aromas ranging from fruity notes of cherries and plums to spicy ones of almond husk, leather, black pepper, nutmeg and sugared almonds. There are balsamic notes, such as mint and eucalyptus. Pleasant hints of cocoa and Virginia blond tobacco in the finish. Tannins are mouthfilling, sweet, but velvety and large. A well-balanced wine whose supporting acidity and savoury character counterbalance alcohol with the help of tannins.
