"A tight, compact style, with vivid acidity accentuating the pointed tannins that outline the black cherry and black currant fruit. Pinched finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2028. 18,333 cases made, 4,000 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"This 40/30/20/10 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot has fine mineral notes and is on the salty side. Fruit is sourced from sites with sandy soils and younger vines. The fruit is beautifully fresh, direct and clean. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Poggio ai Ginepri offers fullness and generosity of dark red fruit. Some 200,000 bottles were made.

A Dream Team is in the works. Tenuta Argentiera has made the excellent decision to bring in Leonardo Raspini as general manager of the estate (beginning in April 2019). Raspini worked for Ornellaia for 14 years and helped to shape much of the identity of the Bolgheri appellation. He joins Argentiera’s owner Stanislaus Turnauer and the estate CEO Federico Zileri Dal Verme." (WA)

"Lovely brambleberries, underbrush, cedar and dried herbs and licorice. Full body, grippy tannins and a finish with a delicious serving of blue-fruit flavors. Drink now." (JS)

"This Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc blend offers aromas of ripe blackberry and baking spice. The round, soft palate evokes black cherry jam, vanilla and star anise alongside lithe tannins. Kerin O’Keefe" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Poggio ai Ginepri - Bolgheri Doc - born from separate vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot extracted by a soft pressing. A nice wine, good structure and higher concentration. Has a broad and deep olfactory landscape that opens in a very frank and immediate. Structure intense, but also beautiful softness and good housekeeping executive.
