Magnum Argentiera DOC Bolgheri Superiore, Tenuta Argentiera
This is very reductive, meaning you have to decant it first to blow off some of the earthiness. If you do, you will find a superrich and gorgeous wine. Full-bodied, with extremely velvety tannins and a long, meaty finish of ripe fruit and chocolate.

Vinification: The carefully selected grapes were grown in the estate’s best vineyards at altitudes of 180 to 200 m a.s.l.. The different grape varieties were vinified separately; fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for about 25-30 days at a controlled temperature never over 28/30° C. The wine was then transferred into mainly new 225 l French oak barriques (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation was completed and it was aged for further 18 months. After the blending the wine undergoes at least a further 12 months of bottle fining before the release on the market.
