Winemaker Notes

When you say Bolgheri it's like saying charm. Who has the practice of this tiny piece of the Maremma and met some wines, and recalls the land, cuts of light, the sea, the profiles, the mood, here are the thoughts that magically start to run fast and the race will evoke, dream, thrill and subtle fascination. Argentiera, our 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 French 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.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

JS 99
James Suckling
A delightful nose of creme de cassis, hot stones and crushed violets and spices. Full body, chewy and super polished tannins and a long finish, which really takes off thanks to electric acidity. An essay in balance and depth. Best ever. Puts Argentiera with the best of the best in Tuscany. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Sleek and elegant, featuring black currant, violet, iron, licorice, olive, tobacco and spice flavors. Deftly balanced, picking up rosemary, juniper and pine accents as this plays out on the long, cohesive finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2042.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Argentiera shows a lot of fullness and generosity, with depth. The texture is wonderfully soft and velvety. It has a beautiful richness to it, with notes of chocolate, spice and dark fruit. This Bolgheri blend is beaming with warm sunshine from within with integrated tannins and mild freshness. My advice, however, is to skip immediately forward to the stunning 2016 vintage—or try both. I tasted this vintage within the context of a mini vertical that included 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 (all vintages that have previously been published).

Argentiera The Winery Winery Image

The Argentiera estate is situated on the coast of Alta Maremma, about 100 km west of Florence in the DOC appellation of Bolgheri. The estate is part of the historic Tenuta di Donoratico dei Serristori, an influential Florentine family that in 1512 acquired this land from the Medici family. Today this property is owned by Corrado and Marcello Fratini, well known entrepreneurs from Florence, and by Marchese Piero Antinori. The estate is planted with specialized vines all of which have the appellation DOC Bolgheri. The vines have an average age of 4–5 years and are situated on a plateau at an elevation of 150 to 200 meters above sea level, the highest altitude level in Bolgheri. Argentiera’s vineyards, located only 2 km from the Tyrrhenian Sea, benefit from breezes that provide consistent ventilation to the vines. They are surrounded by verdant macchia mediterranea, Mediterranean underbrush. Soils of various compositions are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah - international vines very much representative of the Bolgheri area. In fact, here, these vines assume their own character and reach proven elevated quality standards.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
