Bolgheri superiore is a beautifully chocolaty and rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with plush layers of sweet cherry, Indian spice, tobacco and espresso. The wine is amazingly rich and long lasting, with silky, supple tannins at the very end.

Tenuta Argentiera is younger than Bolgheri story itself. The estate was founded in 1999 by the Fratini family and their first ever vintage was the 2004. Argentiera, often confused for Argentine, refers to a silver mine nearby. It’s the 5th largest estate of Bolgheri with 76 ha under vines in total. Situated on the Maremma coastline, the estate was previously part of the old Donoratico estate and then the Antinori family until 1999.
