Magnum Argentiera DOC Bolgheri Superiore, Tenuta Argentiera
Intense and dark ruby red colour. It develops on the nose hints of delicate spices as saffron and paprika, aromas of dark berries like blackberries and cassis (blackcurrant) together with hints of toasted wood and tobacco. On the palate the wine shows round and pleasant complexity with compact and rich tannins offering a silky taste. A lingering and open finish with hints of fresh fruits and mineral notes showing considerable persistence.

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 14 months. After the blending the wine undergoes least a further 12 months of bottle fining before the release on the market.
