Opheliah Maria is the result of a careful selection of only Cabernet Sauvignon grapes growing on a plateau at 200 m. a.s.l. It is one of the few single-variety products in the area of Bolgheri. The aging and the special sensory qualities give life to an elegant wine with a great personality, wide, intense and velvety tannins.
Bright ruby red color.
Just opened it surprises for its rich bouquet reminding the Mediterranean macchia, above all juniper and myrtle, well rooted on a cocoa beans background. Progressively it develops its fruity nature, ruled by fresh red berries and afterward by a hint of dried bell pepper, accompanied by a charm spicy nuance of black one. The balsamic finish is clean and sharp, sketched out by aromas of mint, liquorice, laurel and rhubarb.
The mouth, according to the nose, offers on one side the 2010 climate through an acid freshness and on the other side Argentiera’s terroir with a fine mineral and maritime savory. The body, well balanced, displays a full but elegant structure, that along with the velvet tannic weave it’s quite promising for the future aging.
