Argiano Brunello di Montalcino (750ml)
Since 1888, the finest Sangiovese grapes of the property have been used to make Brunello di Montalcino. Argiano selects the grapes from its most noble vineyards and ages the wine in two different types of wood. The first year is spent in French oak barriques and tonneaux with different to enhance the innate structure of the wine, while the second is spent in larger Slavonian oak barrels which allows the wine to achieve balance. After completing the maturing process in wood, the wine is transferred to concrete tanks to further mature before release where it will continue to develop in the bottle for many years. Drinking now and will develop until 2027.
Argiano’s Brunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its elegance and its deep ruby red colour. It presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and voluptuous body, and interesting, silky tannins. It unites potency and elegance and looks like having a promising future. With its tempting perfumes of red berries and its clean freshness, the complexity of this wine presents an excellent balance.
To fully appreciate its qualities, decant the wine at least one hour before serving.
“Vivid red. Clean aromas and flavors of dusty red fruit, tobacco and flint. Politely styled and fresh, but a little fruit-challenged on the medium-long, lively finish, which features persistent woodsy elements.” 88pts Vinous (Ian d’Agata)
