Winemaker Notes

Poggio ai Ginepri - Bolgheri Doc - born from separate vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot extracted by a soft pressing. A nice wine, good structure and higher concentration. Has a broad and deep olfactory landscape that opens in a very frank and immediate. Structure intense, but also beautiful softness and good housekeeping executive.

JS 92
James Suckling

Lovely brambleberries, underbrush, cedar and dried herbs and licorice. Full body, grippy tannins and a finish with a delicious serving of blue-fruit flavors. 

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This 40/30/20/10 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot has fine mineral notes and is on the salty side. Fruit is sourced from sites with sandy soils and younger vines. The fruit is beautifully fresh, direct and clean. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Poggio ai Ginepri offers fullness and generosity of dark red fruit. Some 200,000 bottles were made.

Argentiera, Italy
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.
