About Argiano

Now owned by the countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, Argiano’s noble roots date back to the renaissance, with the Peccis, the noble family who constructed the villa. This hilltop retreat, south-west of Moltancino, overlooks 48 acres of south facing vineyards, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and of course, Sangiovese.

Good full medium red.  Sexy aromas and flavors of plum, mocha, underbrush, spices and tobacco, with a lavender topnote.  Smoky, sweet and fine-grained; not yet especially complex but shows lush, sweet, velour-like fruit, noteworthy depth, and good energy for the year.  The sappy, smoky finish features some enticing oak spices.  Has plenty of tannins for mid-term aging but this is already accessible.

Very Good Value

by GrunerVeltliner342856
I have been drinking Brunello de Montalcino wines from various producers since the 1982 vintage so I have a pretty good idea of what to expect in a bottle. The 2007 Argiano is a very nice Brunello. I had a bottle in May of 2013. This is too soon to drink it but I couldn't wait. If you intend to drink the 2007 Argiano young it is best to decant the bottle or just open it 2-3 hours before you intend to drink it. I found the wine gained nuances after breathing for 3+ hours. It picked up a slight smokiness that was appealing. The only other Brunello in my cellar from the 2007 vintage is Tenuto Caparzo. The Caparzo is in the same price range as the Argiano. I find the Argiano to be slightly superior to the Caparzo in complexity. I am very pleased with the Argiano and I look forward to drinking it over the next 5-10 years. If you want a better Brunello than this you probably have to spend another $30-50 for a Riserva. Free shipping and NO sales tax sweeten the deal.
Good but not great!

Does not seem to be as bold as other Brunellos but a good wine nonetheless.

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
