Villa Donoratico DOC Bolgheri, Tenuta Argentiera
The nose provides a beautiful balance between freshness with crushed violets and lavender and deeper elements of blackcurrants, licorice and elderberries. Tea leaves and charcoal, too. Full body, really refined and structured tannins and a long finish.

The wine was then put into 225-liter barrels made of French oak; here the malolactic fermentation was completed. The aging process lasted 12 months in oak barrels and at least another 10 months in bottles.
