Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Last unit sold for $80.00

Product description

97 Points - James Suckling

A very polished red with cloves and caramel, on top of black cherries, mushrooms and forest floor. Black olives, too. It's full-bodied with polished tannins and lovely depth all the way through. Slightly chewy. Juicy black-cherries and savoury black olive character. Complex.

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This fragrant red opens with heady scents of blue flower, star anise, camphor and new leather. Still young and primary, it delivers juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry, liquorice and tobacco supported by a backbone of refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it energized and balanced.

The Argiano 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows a lovely transparency to its appearance and follows with lifted red fruit aromas, cassis, wild cherry and blue flower. It is made with a simple approach, fermented in cement tank and aged slowly in oak, and the fruit comes from a 22-hectare site with limestone marl soils. It delivers a lightness and a weightlessness that is not often ascribed to this vintage. No worries, the power of 2016 comes through at the very end in terms of tannins and structure.
