Bolgheri is the home of the original Super Tuscan wines, such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Near the Tyrrhenian coast, the area has become known for its Bordeaux-style wines, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc playing starring roles, instead of the Sangiovese of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Chianti Classico further inland. Tenuta Argentiera is the closest Bolgheri winery to the coast AND has the highest elevation of any winery in the appellation, giving it a unique microclimate.
