Tasting Notes Poggio Argentiera


Maremmante IGT

Colour: Intense ruby red with purple reflexes. Nose: Notes of pepper, elderflower, cloves, cassis, herbs. Palate: Pleasant taste of sapidity and freshness, spicy taste ample and persistent.


Clean and fresh on the nose, the wine is full of ripe peach and citrus aromas. The palate offers a swathe of soft pear and stone fruit character, cut through with a refreshing limey streak. Great with pan-seared salmon or trout, with a herby fresh tomato salsa.

Very appealing red fruit and black cherry notes, characteristic of Maremma Sangiovese, shine through in this fresh, forward and appealing red sustained by solid yet mellow structure.

Luna di Miele. La Casearia Carpenedo

A fascinating blaze of delightfulness between milk and honey. A passionate creaminess with an elegant and floral final sensation. A little taste cuddle to savor with closed eyes. The cheese is wrapped into a gentle bees-wax.

Salame Finocchiona. Renzini 

Finocchiona fennelsalami is made from lean meat and bacon from Italian heavy pigs worked entirely with a knife and its nerves removed by hand. This makes it especially well suited to specialised culinary cuts.

Toma Nostrale. Beppino Occelli

Produced with raw cow’s milk, this is a cheese characteristic of this area. Its rustic traits are guarantee of typical mountain cheeses. Over time its delicate flavour becomes stronger with aromas recalling herbs and meadow flowers. In country cooking it was also used to season and enrich poor dishes such as polenta. A good, even young, Dolcetto is the ideal wine for this type of cheese.
