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 75 hectares of breathtakingly beautiful Tuscan coast, approximately 100 km southwest of Florence. In the prestigious DOC of Bolgheri, Argentiera is the estate closest to the sea and also highest in altitude, making the land and microclimate 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.


Only grapes from the most best plots of the Ventaglio vineyard are harvested by hand in crates and selected on two sorting tables. Whole grapes fall by gravity into two small cone shaped tanks made of French oak, where they are fermented on the skins, alternating daily pumping over and manual punching down of the cap for 25 days at a controlled temperature of 82-86° F. The wine is then transferred into barriques and larger tonneau barrels made from French and Austrian oak, some of which are new, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged 18-24 months in oak for prior to bottling.
