Description

When you say Bolgheri is like saying charm. Who has the practice of this tiny piece of the Maremma and met some wines, and recalls the land, cuts of light, the sea, the profiles, the mood, here are the thoughts that magically start to run fast and the race will evoke, dream, thrill and subtle fascination.

Argentiera, our Doc Bolgheri Superiore, is a wine with a rich and silky taste whose grapes come from the most dedicated vineyards of Tenuta Argentiera. The long fining in Frenc oak barrique, the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the unique terroir of Tenuta Argenitera, make this wine one of the highest expressions of the Bolgheri Area

The history

Along the charming coast of the Alta Maremma, to the south-west of Florence and about 100 km from the city, in the small and prestigious DOC Bolgheri area lies Tenuta Argentiera, which is part of the old Estate of Donoratico that once belonged to the Florentine Serristori family.

In Etruscan times, the plateau of the Tenuta was rich in canals, natural springs and silver mines, from which the estate’s present name derives, which made the area an important mining and agricultural centre.

The Tenuta is now owned by the brothers Corrado and Marcello Fratini.

Land and vineyeards

The Tenuta’s owners have always paid special attention to this fascinating place by exalting, in every possible way, the nature of a land that is strongly dedicated to the production of excellent red wines. 75 of the estate’s 500 hectares are planted with specialized vineyards, all falling into the DOC Bolgheri[Registered Designation of Origin] Bolgheri and IGT Toscana appellation with a total production of about 500.000 bottles. Within the DOC Bolgheri area, Tenuta Argentiera is the closest estate to the sea and the one that reaches the highest altitude, spreading from the plains to the hills. Its vineyards are completely surrounded by a luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation, and the countryside where the Tenuta is situated is circumscribed by avenues of secular maritime pines and olive groves, in a charming and richly-scented landscape.  


This varied land is cultivated with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah, which are extremely typical, superb quality vines of the Bolgheri area.

The wine cellar

The project for the Wine Cellar draws inspiration from the architectural styles typical of the Tuscan coast between Livorno and Grosseto, with leaning, rather thick walls that guarantee the natural thermoregulation of the cellars. The grapes, after being hand-selected and picked from their bunches in the collection rooms, fall directly by force of gravity into the vinification cellar underground, right into stainless steel barrels for fermentation both through pressing and through remounting and delestage systems. An efficient computerized system guarantees a constant temperature by means of hot and cold water flows. Lastly, the wine refining cellars hold the Barriques in French oak, maintained at 16°C at all times, where the vinification process is completed.
