($66) Full medium-deep red. Musky aromas of plum, gunpowder and coffee. Supple on entry, then dense but a bit unforthcoming in the middle palate, offering hints of minerals and meat but limited real sweetness. Finishes with fairly ripe but slightly dry tannins. (Visa Imports, New York, NY)

http://www.WinesByJennifer.com Big and brooding even after decant, this wine is still a baby. Rust colored. Dusty cherries, earth, and sandalwood on the nose. Good fruit, dirt, spice, along with rustic tannins that suggest a much longer lifespan. Continued to develop in decanter for the disciplined hour we took to enjoy it.

About This Producer


Argiano is a reliable, 30-hectare estate in Montalcino producing modern style Brunello di Montalcino, with Riservas designated for the best vintages. They also make a Rosso di Montalcino and, since 1995, a "Super Tuscan" called Solengo (Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah). The Villa of Argiano is a magnificent construction, built in the Renaissance by the Peccis, a noble family from Siena. The land has been farmed by local nobles since the 1500s. The vineyards are composed of limestone and clay with large quantities of minerals. Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano has owned the property since 1991. She hired both Giacomo Tachis and Sebastiano Rosa.
