Villa Donoratico DOC Bolgheri, Tenuta Argentiera
Intense ruby red with purple highlights. Rich and complex with fruity hints of plums, bilberries and raspberries as well as balsamic notes of mint, eucalyptus and sage. In the background, hints of cocoa, nutmeg, pepper and a fine finish of rosemary. Elegant palate where the grace and the structure of its tannins bear witness to the perfect ageing in wood. Medium-bodied wine with fruity notes of blackberries and a spicy balsamic character. Well structured wine with good aromatic length and a good, fresh mineral finish.
