Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 'Vigna del Suolo' 2018 - 3 Litre Bottle

Product description

The nose is extremely complex and broad. Classic Sangiovese notes are on display, particularly marasca cherry and flowers, but there are also scents of orange peel, sage, and balsamic, among others. Dense, structured, and savory in the mouth with silky, integrated tannins and a fragrant acidity. Very long finish.

97 Points - Wine Spectator

This sleek, delineated red grabs your attention with a beam of cherry and black currant, while pointed tannins line the finish. Shows earth, menthol, white pepper and juicy red berry flavors that are expressive and mouthwatering. Superlong finish.

96 Points - James Suckling

A very fine and polished Brunello with fine, creamy tannins that are polished and very curated. Cherry and bark character. Medium to full body with ripe tannins. Juicy. Orange peel.

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

A more serious and mysterious profile emerges in the 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino Vigna Del Suolo, with unfolding layers of cherry liqueur, leather, smoky cedar, licorice, and rocky earth. Medium to full-bodied, with fantastic structure and balance, it has depth without weight, offering ripe tannins that are well-integrated and driving acidity that creates fantastic tension throughout. Notes of tea leaves, bergamot, clove, and turned soil all work together harmoniously.

95 Points - Decanter

While it demonstrates greater density than the estate bottling, do not expect a brawny beast - this is exquisitely refined and midweight, though not insubstantial. Gorgeous scents of raspberry, rooibos tea and rhubarb greet the nose. The palate is pure-fruited and invigorating, with crunchy acidity. Grainy tannins grip confidently, and it closes with a long, energetic and mouthwatering finish.
