Argiano Vigna del Suolo Brunello di Montalcino 2015
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Underbrush, plum, tobacco and violet shape the nose, along with a whiff of eucalyptus oil. Full in weight yet refined, the enveloping palate doles out juicy black cherry, orange zest, vanilla and licorice alongside densely woven, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022–2030. LUX Wines
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.
