Serious stuff at a price that'll make you smile! This Super Tuscan blend shows plum, cherries, blueberries, white pepper, chocolate, and nutmeg, with touches of sweet basil and licorice. The tannins are big, but ripe and round, and the juicy acidity will keep you coming back.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this opens with bold, opulent tones of black fruit, ripe cherry, espresso bean and plum. The wine’s delicate acidity and ample extraction are followed by flavors of leather, spice and dark chocolate. (4/1/2013) -91

Villa Donoratico DOC Bolgheri 2010

Grape Varieties
45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes
Deep and bright ruby red colour. On the nose impressive and pleasant hints of red berries like redcurrant, raspberries and cherries. Some sweet hints are coming up, which are reminding exotic perfume going then over to spicy and balsamic hints like liquorice and eucalyptus. The elegant palate offers silky and well-structured tannins, showing the aromas discovered already on the nose and with a very pleasant fruity ending. The aftertaste is long and persistent with intense aromas and fresh and mineral character.

Climate
The winter 2010 was particularly cold with low average temperatures until the End of March, which allowed the vines to have the necessary growing rest. Mid of March we had a heavy snowfall and also spring was colder than usual with a lot of rainfall until the month of May. This seasonal development brought to a delay in blossoming and veraison and, as a consequence, slower plant growth too. The temperature only rose in June to reach a seasonally appropriate average but with high temperature excursion between day and night what assisted the development of the aromatical flavours. July was a hot month with a lot of sunshine and no rainfall, what allowed the correct development of the pants, while August brought about 70 mm of rainfall but remaining within the maximum temperature of 32° C. The harvest started 2 weeks later than usual, respect to all our former vintages because of the delay in spring, caused by the low temperature, which was not made up during the summer months. We started the harvest with the Merlot, which lasted for 10 days with some interruptions in order to have the best ripening result. Afterwards we picked the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The perfect weather conditions, with sunny and windy days, allowed us to continue the harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon so that we finished the harvest about Mid of October, with all the grapes in the best ripening condition and with an excellent polyphenolic development and sugar balance.

Vinification
The different grape varieties were vinified separately; fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for about 20/25 days at a controlled temperature never over 28° C. The wine has then been transferred into 225 l French oak barriques (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation was completed. It was aged for 14 months in barriques and after the blending at least further 9 months in bottle.

2010 Tenuta Argentiera Bolgheri Rosso Villa Donoratico
A Proprietary Blend Dry Red Table wine from Castagneto Carducci, Tuscany, Italy
Review by Monica Larner

Rating: 88
Drink 2014 - 2019
The 2010 Bolgheri Rosso Villa Donoratico (45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc with Merlot and Petit Verdot) is a lean and straightforward expression with medium persistency and heft. It embodies a clean, unpretentious style with simple aromas of red fruit, cherry and light spice. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019. Tenuta Argentiera is a fascinating property that is only at the beginning of what I hope will be a long and successful road ahead. Founded in 1999 in partnership with Piero Antinori, the 72 hectares of vines are just entering their prime production years. As a result, the property has started to release some ambitious new mono-varietal wines. A pure expression of Merlot, the first vintage of Giorgio Bartholomaus was released in 2009 in honor of proprietor Corrado Fratini’s grandchild. A second wine, the 100% 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Opheliah Maria (dedicated to Corrado’s latest grandchild) will see its debut later in the year.
