Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

Full, deep ruby. Spicy blackberry and cassis nose shows a roasted torrefaction aspect. Lush, dense and quite primary; generous, full and deep. An exotic hint of mint brightens the dark berry flavors. Finishes very long and ripely tannic. (Vias Imports)

The Sangiovese really comes through, toning down the Bordeaux varietals with its earthiness; aromatic, medium finish; still plenty good but probably won't get any better

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.
