Winemaker Notes

Impossible to find a better Super Tuscan at this price. Intense red fruits with layers of spice, red flowers, and slight balsamic notes. Round and complex but elegant tannins.

Pair with meat or mushroom-based pasta or rice dishes.

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Petit Verdot

James Suckling

A pretty Bolgheri with notes of cherries, plums, peppercorns and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Round, balanced and creamy with a fruity edge. Vivid finish. Drink or hold

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Tenuta Argentiera Poggio al Ginepri is a lovely and appealing wine with an excellent range of nuances. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black fruit, fragrant flowers, dried leaves, and savory spices. Enjoy it with a rosemary-accented, oven-roasted chicken. (Tasted: July 10, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The easy-drinking Tenuta Argentiera 2020 Bolgheri Rosso Poggio ai Ginepri reflects the hot vintage with black cherry, dried fruit, pie crust and raspberry tart. The tannins are sweet, and the wine presents a soft, fruit-forward personality. There is a hint of tannic structure at the back, but the mouthfeel is mostly velvety and plush.

Argentiera Tenuta Argentiera's Vineyards Winery Video

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.
