Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Argentiera is big and bold for all of you Cabernet lovers. The Wine Advocate notes “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” and Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the foundation of the flavor and intensity in this wine. “…..there is no doubt that this vintage brings Tenuta Argentiera into a new era as a Bolgheri protagonist” and we totally agree. Now is the time to add this to your collection of the great Solaia’s and Sassicaia’s at a fantastic price.

Wine Advocate

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.

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 in 2021.
