To describe a wine is always necessary to decipher the landscape of origin, then place it in the environment that generates it to appreciate nature.
Villa Donoratico is a very large and complex wine that never falls into banality, showing a character deeply attached to his area of origin. Matured in oak casks, extraordinary in its drinkability and his fidelity to the type that can give way to the sensations of red fruits on the nose, and slightly spicy on the palate with a nice ending note reminiscent of licorice.
|Along the charming coast of the Alta Maremma, to the south-west of Florence and about 100 km from the city, in the small and prestigious DOC Bolgheri area lies Tenuta Argentiera, which is part of the old Estate of Donoratico that once belonged to the Florentine Serristori family.
In Etruscan times, the plateau of the Tenuta was rich in canals, natural springs and silver mines, from which the estate’s present name derives, which made the area an important mining and agricultural centre.
The Tenuta is now owned by the brothers Corrado and Marcello Fratini.
