Argenina is one of the oldest hamlets in the town of Monti. Around the inhabited center, now completely restored, the company owns three hectares of vineyards. The land - we are at 310-375 meters above sea level, with exposures ranging from South-East to South-West - is of volcanic origin and has the characteristic yellow ocher color of the tuff. The wines that are born from this soil are distinguished by their great pleasantness, harmony, freshness of fruit and their floral aromas. To enhance these characteristics, the grapes are fermented in steel vats at a lower temperature than the Grosso Sanese, in order to preserve the intensity of the primary aromas of the grapes. The refinement takes place completely in small oak barrels, or in used barriques. The production is around 25,000 bottles. The intense fruity notes make it immediately pleasant and fascinating. Black cherry, vanilla, cocoa, sweet and well blended tannins, intense and ample floral notes. Both to the nose and to the taste it is elegant and offers warm, soft and mineral sensations.
