Argentiera Bolgheri Poggio Al Ginepri 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
The 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Poggio ai Ginepri comes from a dry and hot vintage. Thanks to the sea breezes that wash across the vineyards, there was no loss of acidity. This is an open and accessible wine without much heft. It offers light notes of black olive and black fruit. It was bottled at the end of August, and this is a great value.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this opens with aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry and cooking spice. The straightforward round palate offers blackberry jam, vanilla and star anise alongside supple tannins.
