"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows laser focus and a precise delivery of aromas that makes an immediate and satisfying first impression. This is a delicately assembled wine that shows the deft hand of the winemaking team behind the scenes. Bright fruit and cherry is connected, in a careful embroidery, to spice, leather, tar and cured tobacco. There are subtle tones of ash and crushed mineral as well." (WA)

"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." (VM)

"Fantastic aromas of orange peel and dark berry with plenty of plum and cherry. Sweet tobacco and mushrooms. Full body, juicy and fruity with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Complex and gorgeous. Fine and very long. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Argiano is one of the oldest winemaking estates in Montalcino with a rich history dating back to the Renaissance. The estate was founded in 1580 and has served as a bastion of winemaking through the centuries, as well as home to noble families and popes. In more contemporary times, Argiano produced one of the first Brunello di Montalcinos, and in 1967, was one of the two founders of the Consorzio di Brunello di Montalcino. Today, Argiano is widely acknowledged as one of the finest producers in the district for crafting Brunello di Montalcino.
