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.

88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

(14.5% alcohol):  Bright, dark ruby-red.  Herbs and minerals complicate dark red cherry and vanilla on the nose.  Floral and vibrant on the palate, with rich red cherry and herbal notes.  Finishes with good lift and lingering herbal nuances, not to mention a firm, almost astringent tannic spine.  Hopefully, a little time in bottle will smooth this baby out.

Friday night Brunello

by Muscat528977
Bought a case of this wine a few months ago, couldn't wait any longer so we pulled out the 1st bottle last night (11/21/2014). I'm far from a wine expert and can't express the smells and tastes like many others do. However, I do know this is an excellent wine that shows a lot of complexity (both on the smell and taste). Will try to let the other 11 bottles sit for awhile, but that may be a difficult task!
Very fruity

Liking this a lot - expected it to be very dry..while it is tannic, it's not extreme. Fruity, good legs, am interested to try it again after a little more cellar time.

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...
