Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Wine Spectator: A lean, wiry red, whose leather, earth and tobacco flavors dominate the modest cherry fruit notes. Think pasta with a duck or sausage ragù. Drink now through 2018. (2016)

Full ruby garnet color, peppery-herbal and vanilla aromas, medium, full-body, dark cherry and plum fruit flavors are supported by sweet tannins with oak finish. Perfect for vegetable soup and stewed rabbit, veal or baby lamb. - Winery Region: Toscana Oenologist: Hans Vinding-Diers Grapes: 100% Sangiovese Grosso Vineyards location: Montalcino Extension: 23 ha Orientation: South Altitude: 900 Ft Vine training: cordon Speronato Soil: Marley limestone, clay Vinification: Skin maceration for 15 days. The malolactic fermentation was rather slow due to the high alcohol content. Ageing: The ageing process of the wine begins by using large oak casks and second usage in French barriques Producer information: In 1581, at the summit of a hill, south-west of Montalcino, the Villa of Argiano was built among vineyards and olive groves. Over the centuries, this estate has been owned by important families such as the Buonsignori, Albizzeschi, Tolomei, Montanini, Sozzini, Colombini, Ugurgieri, and Pecci families. In 1992, the Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano acquired the estate and sought to improve the propriety’s winemaking under the oenological guidance of the famous winemaker Giacomo Tachis. This project strove to achieve the highest standards of quality and resulted in Tachis’ creation of the exceptional Solengo, a Bordeaux blend that exudes its privileged Montalcino terroir. Today, Adriano Bambagioni, Argiano’s supervising cellar master for over 20 years, and the world-renowned Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers guarantee the quality and reputation of the Argiano estate. In 2013, the estate was purchased by Andre Esteves, who has left the winemaking team intact and redoubled efforts on continue the long-standing tradition of Argiano.
