Empson USA Expands Its Tuscan Selection Adding Poggio Argentiera to the Portfolio


The Maremma producer is the latest addition to a stellar wine selection that already featured Tuscan icons Eredi Fuligni, Boscarelli, Conti Costanti among others.

New York, NY, June 12, 2023 –  Empson USA is proud to announce the addition of Poggio Argentiera from Maremma, Tuscany, to its award-winning wine selection with three wines: Bellamarsilia Morellino di Scansano DOCG, Capatosta Toscana Rosso IGT and Poggioraso Toscana Cabernet Franc IGT. The prestigious wine importer has been importing Italy’s finest wines for over fifty years. 

The PoggioargentierA project started in 1997 with the acquisition of a 15-acres farm, now the Adua estate, adjacent to the Natural Park of Maremma. It expanded in the following years with the purchase of another estate in Baccinello, in 2001, and the integration of several vineyards, counting today over 50 acres in the Morellino di Scansano appellation. The different environmental conditions of the two locations allow the winery to convey the multifaceted reality  of Maremma in the glass. Adua is only 3-3.5 miles away from the seaside area of Marina di Alberese, where the soil is predominantly sandy and loamy. On the other hand, due to its proximity to Mount Amiata, the Bacinello estate benefits from ideal exposure, higher altitude, and a stony soil composition.

“We are thrilled to partner with PoggioargentierA, an estate with significant roots on the Maremma coast of Tuscany.” commented Empson USA CEO Tara Empson. “We’ve always been drawn to this rustic and innovative area of Tuscany and look forward to working with Giovanni Frascolla and his esteemed family, responsible for making terroir-driven expressions of this diverse and exciting region.”

Giovanni Frascolla, Winemaker at PoggioargentierA, added: “I am very pleased to bring PoggioargentierA back to the United States after a long time, and I am happy to have done so with a company like Empson that shares our values. Where employees feel part of a family business, just like we do.”

Poggio Argentiera wines will be available nationwide. For further information about the Empson portfolio visit www.empsonusa.com
