Of all the Grand Gala Tasting Events hosted here at B-21 over the years, none are as popular as the Italian events. Importers and winemakers from every corner of Italy attend these events, entertaining while educating so many enthusiastic B-21 Italian wine lovers. This year, we took things to the next level, sponsoring James Suckling's event of epic proportions "Great Wines of Italy 2017," which took place in Miami on March 6, 2017. I couldn't be more proud, Suckling telling the world that he considers B-21 one of "the best independent wine merchants in America!" To celebrate this huge success, marking the occasion for all to remember, I've gathered together an unmatched collection of the highest-rated wines from that event as well as those you consider perennial favorites. This collection of Italian wines shares the fabric and history of Italy; it's so much more than a group of table wines. The complexities of the wines, the histories of the families, the iconic nature of the cuvees... these are the stuff of legends. I trust you'll find something to love and I thank you for making B-21 what we are today.


Sporting a special ten-year anniversary label printed on silver paper, the 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Argentiera is a beautiful wine and is certainly the best expression I have yet to taste from Tenuta Argentiera. The results are smooth and silky, and the wine reveals beautiful integration and finesse. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc (aged in oak for 18 months). It is bursting with blackberry, dried cherry, spice, tobacco and grilled herb. The mouthfeel is firm and powerful, but never too heavy. The Tenuta Argentiera estate is really coming into its own and is showing steady and encouraging growth, year after year.

95 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 227 - Oct 2016)

Aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and stones. Full-bodied yet lively and tight with integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Refined and polished. It is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Better in 2019.
