    Fresher than the 2001. Lovely elegance.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Perfumes of blackberry and currant follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. A little tight now, but stylish. Needs time. 2,540 cases made.

    Readers will find much to admire in these two new releases from Argiano, located in the southern part of the Montalcino zone. The 2004 Solengo presents gorgeous aromatics followed by super-ripe dark fruit, crushed flowers, herbs, spices and sweet toasted oak that flow from its opulent, full-bodied frame. Showing superb concentration, the wine is supported by an attractive note of underlying minerality that provides balance as well as a sense of proportion. It offers outstanding length, a silky-textured personality and ripe, sweet tannins on the finish in a rare display that marries power with elegance. It will be tempting to drink this early, but a few years of cellaring will give the wine an opportunity to express the fullest range of its potential. In 2004 Solengo is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Syrah that spent 17 months in new French oak barrels.

    Mistreated bottle or shut down--couldn't tell, but this bottle did not give much--aromas and flavors noticeably missing. First night, soft tannins, and soft all around (not much structure), second night acidity came to the fore--became more Barbera-like(!), but still no flavor development. (0 views)

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.
