I drank it accompanied with a snack. We drank the whole bottle at once with friends and a good conversation.
The colour was rather dark red. Tea aromas. It tasted like grape juice.

4/5

A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. Aromas of coffee and wood. I was surprised by its salty notes, but enjoyed it.
I lioved the combination of Argentiera Bolgheri Superiore with codfish.
I discovered it at a tasting event for wines.
