Winemaker Notes

Suolo is produced out of Sangiovese Grosso from the vineyard Vignoni, the oldest vineyard at Argiano, and from Oliviera, one of Argiano's younger vineyards. As a result, Suolo shows a unique synergy between young and old vines while exploring the great complexity of Argiano's terroir. Intense ruby, with a persistent nose of dark fruits. Smooth and silky with well-integrated oak; long-lasting finish with hints of balsam, earth and lingering fruit.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
A voluptuous red with plenty of plums, flowers and light vanilla character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, soft and round. Very modern, pure and delicious sangiovese.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Sangiovese-based 2012 Suolo is a dense and spicy red wine that shows the darker and more elaborate side of this mighty Tuscan grape. There are slight signs of obvious fruit ripeness here with raspberry, strawberry and blackberry preserves. The wine also delivers generous levels of spice, tobacco and leather that cover some of those warm fruit layers. This edition of Suolo is very generous, but it doesn't reach the same level of complexity or sharpness seen in cooler vintages.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-marked by oak, revealing black cherry, blackberry, toast and resin flavors, all backed by a firm structure. Finds balance in the end, delivering a spicy aftertaste and hints of chocolate. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2020. 290 cases made

Tenuta di Argiano The Villa Winery Image

After this estate was acquired by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, the philosophy changed whereby quality and personality became the dominant priorities. In order to achieve these goals, Sebastiano Rosa was appointed as General Manager of the Estate. Having spent six years at the University of California at Davis, a two year tenure at Chateau Lafite Rothschild and three years at Sassacaia, he brings a strong mix of experience. In addition, Dr. Giacomo Tachis, probably the most well known winemaker in Italy today, became the oenologist. His legacy includes Sassacaia, Tignanello and Solaia, to name a few. Argiano's vineyards are located in the Montalicino area where a perfect microclimate assures a super ecological system. Varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese are planted. These grapes have not traditionally been part of the Montalcino area.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
