Argentiera - 2013

Winter temperatures were within the average ranges, with a lot of rainfall but without any snow. The 2013 Spring season was marked by unusual low temperatures which were well below the season average range, with constantly alternated rainy and sunny days. The low temperatures persisted in June causing a 15 days delay in plant growth compared to the previous years. During the first part of June the low temperatures and intense rainfalls in addition to a heavy hailstorm have been the reasons for a low yield per hectare. The Summer season was fairly hot with peaks of 32°C, except for few showers, which proved to be beneficial for the vines. September was characterized by a particularly warm and dry weather, which enhanced the aromatical development, as well as the grapes' polyphenolic characteristics.

Classification: DOC Bolgheri Superiore
Vintage: 2011
Grape varieties: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.

Very complex on the nose with fresh hints of fruit as marasca cherry, followed by intense hints of white pepper and balsamic notes, finishing with some sweetness and vanilla. After the first impact hints of citrus wood and macerated red roses are showing up.

The tannic structure is present but silky and pleasant. A lingering and intense aromatic finish, that enhances its elegance, structure and complexity.
