Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Solid, with blackberry, plum and cedar character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. This is what you expect from an outstanding Brunello. 10,830 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

($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)

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

Suolo uses some of the Argiano's oldest Sangiovese vineyards, a policy which can only arouse a few doubts, particularly after tasting the 1999 Brunello di Montalcino. The aromas, with the notes of game, Mediterranean herbs, and plum and cherry fruit, could not be more Sangiovese, but the texture is a bit lean and the finish slightly dry. Some bottle time may smooth out the kinks, but it seems hard to believe that the major wine of the house and the zone couldn't and shouldn't be its best wine as well.

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.

Wine Varietal: Sangiovese

Italyâ??s most popular grape, Sangiovese is the top grape used in Tuscany including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many of Italyâ??s â??Super Tuscans.â?? At least 14 clones of Sangiovese exist which are grouped into the Sangiovese grosso and Sangiovese piccolo families. Sangiovese thrives in a warm climate and consists of over 10% of Italyâ??s vineyard acreage (covering almost a quarter million acres). Over the past decade Sangiovese has become increasingly popular and successful in California as well. Typical descriptors for Sangiovese include candied or dried cherry, citrus, leather, violets and tea.
