Firstly I was very pleased to have identified this blind as one made from mainly Cab and probably from Bolgheri. Nailed it. Bold and giving with good backbone and finish. A very good, good value choice.

Tenuta Argentiera Villa Donoratico Bolgheri DOC 2016: Full-bodied. Big. Bold. Dark fruit. Firm tannins that need to relax. Overall, a sophisticated Italian Bordeaux blend consisting of 40/30/20/10 however time is the key component here to really see this wine shine. Cheers🍷

Очень приличное и приятное, классически тосканское. На запах ярко-кисло, надо декантировать. На вкус чернослив, ягоды, кислотно, капелька конюшни. Очень пристойно.

Villa Donoratico was bought by owners of Tenuta Argentiera a while ago. Vineyard for this wine are mainly planted on the northeast part of their owning. Compared to Poggio ai Ginepri in here you'll find much more elegant and not that bold style of wine. Nose are full of liquorice, smoke and leather. There are a lot of black fruits as well, but not that much as in the previous one. It is important that the fermentation of each different grape variety was separate.

Dark chocolate gelato, strawberry, raspberry preserves, chalk. Well balanced but a bit shy on character. I wanted it to open just a bit more

Velvet sandpaper... balanced, big and rich. Exotic yet familiar. Dark chocolate, unripened raspberries. Vanilla. Earthy nose. Plumb

Drink now after one hour decant - very good but no good for long cellaring, lots of sediments already
