BRANDCastello di Bolgheri
The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Argentiera is a 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc blend that delivers the pedigree of the estate. However, those hot-vintage considerations are hard to avoid.
The wine opens to dark and sultry fruit with blackberry and dried currant. Those fruit tones are followed by spice, campfire ash and potting soil. The wine works up great momentum on the bouquet.
