A vineyard with a fantastic view. 150 to 200 metres (492 to 656 feet) above sea level - in good weather the view ranges from the magnificent slope to the sea and even to the Isle of Elba, Capraia, Gorgone, even to Corsica rising from the horizon. The vineyards are situated very close to the sea, but nevertheless high enough - ideal circumstances.
The wine estate was bought together by the Florentine traders Corrado and Marcello Fratini and Marchese Piero Antinori. It measures 72 hectares (178 acres) and on 60 (148) of them wine is grown. So Argentiera ranks among the biggest in the region. It lies at the southern border of the DOC region Bolgheri and makes for an impressive conclusion of the tour. The new Barricia in the middle of the vineyards is being built, a luxury hotel is being planned, too.
The vines are still very young and it is amazing how dense the Argentiera already tastes now. If the wine becomes as good as the view, it will hardly be beaten.
