'Poggio ai Ginepri' DOC Bolgheri, Tenuta Argentiera
Intense and deep red colour. On the nose intense and fresh with flowery aromas of violets and balsamic hints combined to red fruit like cherries, plums and blackberries. The palate is round, complex with ripen and sweet tannins. Nice fruity aftertaste with good acidity, which offers a long lingering and fresh finish.
