Founded in 1999, Tenuta Argentiera is located in the southern part of the Bolgheri DOC area, on the hills of Donoratico, reaching a maximum altitude of 200 meters above sea level. From here, you can admire a panorama of vineyards and a variety of terrains that extend to the horizon of the sea of the Tuscan archipelago.
The name of the estate is a tribute to Podere Argentiera, which was already present in the land registers of the Grand Duchy. Since 2016, the company has been led by Austrian entrepreneur Stanislaus Turnauer, who owns 80 hectares of land. This choice was determined by a deep love for this land. Tenuta Argentiera’s approach is based on cohesive teamwork and the ability to transform the international point of view and the respectful evolution of a territory into wine.

Intense ruby red colour. Different fruity aromas emerge on the nose: the notes of blackberries, blueberries, cherries and dried plums are felt. Slightly hot spicy nuances are also perceived, such as white pepper and cinnamon, together with hints of sweeter aromas, such as vanilla. On the palate, the wine is soft, with well-balanced tannins, which extend into a persistent and intense finish, characterized by a remarkable cleanliness.
Perfect with structured first courses or second courses based on red meat or game, even cooked for a long time, or with medium-aged cheeses.
