91pts Jeb Dunnuck

The 2021 Poggio Ai Ginepri reveals a forward style, potent with a floral perfume of crushed red flowers, black cherry, sage, medicinal herbs, and cedar. It is full bodied and fleshy with a silky texture and rich with mocha, black plum compote, and wet earth. A great entry into the wines of the estate, it captures the opulence and structure of the style. Drink 2023-2033.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

Seesawing between spicy and sweet, the nose on this wine gives roasted red peppers, balsamic vinegar, cherries and pickling spices. The palate maintains the back and forth momentum, with more heat and sturdy but forgiving tannins.

Winemaker Notes

Poggio ai Ginepri IGT is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot vinified separately and extracted by soft pressing. A nice wine with defined structure and pronounced concentration. The wine’s olfactory panorama is ample and profound while at once immediate and present. An intense structure characterizes this wine, but with a beautiful softness and a remarkably clean finish.

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot

Winery Notes

Tenuta Argentiera stands in a magnificent patch of land in the Maremma that blends countryside and sea, suspended between woods and Mediterranean scrub. The Argentiera estate covers 80 hectares of breathtakingly beautiful Tuscan coast, approximately 100 km southwest of Florence. Argentiera is incredibly close to the sea and at a high altitude, making the land especially well-suited to growing incredible red grapes. The estate is considered among the most beautiful in Italy, with its spectacular view of the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Their soils range from calcerous and stony to sandy to mineral and pebbly, lending complexity to the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah. The vineyards are surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and the countryside is flush with maritime pines and olive tree groves.

Argentiera has five main vineyard sites, ranging in elevation from 80-220 meters above sea level: Argentiera, Ginestre, Ventaglio, Porcarecce, and Ceccosodo. Every plot is harvested and vinified separately, exclusively in stainless steel, to preserve the character and fruity complexity lent by terroir variations. The wineries and cellars themselves are made of recycled or traditional materials such as terracotta and baked roofing tiles.
