Winemaker's Notes

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Syrah

Poggio ai Ginepri means "little hill of junipers" and refers to the juniper bushes that dot the Argentiera property. Argentiera's vineyards, located only 2 km from the sea, are situated at Bolgheri's highest altitude point and benefit from breezes that provide constant ventilation in the vineyard. After harvest, each of the three varietals that make up Poggio ai Ginepri are vinified separately. 50% of the wine ages in 2–3 year old French and Hungarian oak barrels for 10 months and 50% in stainless steel tanks. High density planting and low yields create a wine of great fruit concentration and intensity.

Deep ruby-red core with a purple rim. Red fruit and floral notes on the nose with hints of spicy oak. Full-bodied and smooth, this wine is well structured and complex with a long, satisfying finish.
