    The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Argentiera is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and the Cabernet Sauvignon logically feels and tastes most prominent. This is a dark and penetrating Tuscan red that is beautifully elevated, thanks to the extremely elegant and buoyant quality of the aromas. They lift gracefully from the glass with light-footed, almost fleeting character. However, don't underestimate the power and the concentration of the wine, because this vintage delivers both with abundance. I've had my eye on this estate since the vineyards were first planted some 20 years ago, and there is no doubt that this vintage brings Tenuta Argentiera into a new era as a Bolgheri protagonist. Some 80,000 bottles were made. Monica Larner

    A Dream Team is in the works. Tenuta Argentiera has made the excellent decision to bring in Leonardo Raspini as general manager of the estate (beginning in April 2019). Raspini worked for Ornellaia for 14 years and helped to shape much of the identity of the Bolgheri appellation. He joins Argentiera’s owner Stanislaus Turnauer and the estate CEO Federico Zileri Dal Verme. Monica Larner

    Love the complexity to this with lots of rosemary and lavender that complement the currant and violet character. Full-bodied, yet extremely polished and tight on the palate. The tannins are ever so fine. Extremely long and beautiful. Another excellent wine, after the superb 2015. Drink from 2021. - James Suckling

    Finally Argentiera returns to excellence, following several years of wines falling below expectations due to various changes. The estate is located at the southernmost border of the appellation. In 2016, possibly because of the high percentage of Merlot in the blend, the wine shows great complexity from straw notes and earthy tones in a sort of Right Bank style, with meaty cassis fruit and a slightly leaner body full of finesse. The tannins in this vintage are almost silky from this higher altitude part of the appellation, at 200 metres above sea level. Drinking Window 2019 - 2040. AF - Decanter
