"Argiano's Brunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its elegance and its deep ruby red colour. It presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and voluptuous body, and interesting, silky tannins. It unites potency and elegance and looks like having a promising future. With its tempting perfumes of red berries and its clean freshness, the complexity of this wine presents an excellent balance. To fully appreciate its qualities, decant the wine at least one hour before serving." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The estate's Brunello is all about extra aging time: after a year in French oak, it is then moved to Slovenian barrels for another year and finally cement tanks for "finishing" before being bottled. The 2011 is a spectacular showing, with densely concentrated flavors of dark berries, almond, and dark chocolate. It's silky smooth on the palate and its lovely softness will only increase with time. The wine finishes with excellent length, featuring lush tannin that lingers pleasantly after each sip.
"Lots of earth, spice and plum aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, soft and round. Lovely savory finish. Hints of smoky oak and ripe fruit on the finish. Nice successor to the great 2010. Drink or hold." —JamesSuckling.com
