Poggio ai Ginepri DOC Bolgheri Red 2015
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 20% Merlot
Along the charming coast of the Alta Maremma, 100 km to the south-west of Florence, in the small and prestigious DOC Bolgheri area lies Tenuta Argentiera, which is part of the old Estate of Donoratico that once belonged to the Florentine Serristori family.
Poggio ai Ginepri - Bolgheri Doc - born from separate vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot extracted by a soft pressing. A generous wine, with good structure and deep concentration. The wine has as a broad and deep olfactory landscape that opens in a very frank and immediate way. The structure is intense, but also balanced by beautiful softness and depth of complexity. Truly a classy wine.
On the nose it expresses fruity aromas of red berries like hints of cherries and raspberry. Fresh on the palate with a long finish, deliciously moreish.
"A deep well of black currant, blackberry, licorice, cedar and graphite flavours draws you in for the ripe fruit on the palate. There is good grip, with fine overall balance and a long aftertaste of black currant, mineral and tobacco. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,
Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024.
