2006 Tenuta Argentiera Bolgheri Villa Donoratico

Rich Italian blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Merlot. Very deep in color, this blend sports some wonderful aromas of vanilla, mocha, toasted oak and green peppers!

Layers of leather, currants, plums, coffee and dried herbs filled our palate. The tannins have some serious grip in the mouth, but the wine offers great balance of acidity. Subtle oak flavors and green peppers finish it off on the back end. Decently long lasting finish leaves you wanting more!

This robust, medium-to-full bodied wine is sure to please most, especially bold cab drinkers! the complexity of different flavors justifies the $20 price tag. This is a perfect "gift wine!" Very good! Top Pick!


Sounds yummy I love love anything Italian!
