Last Year's #1 Wine of the World for the 2018 vintage in Wine Spectator, this is the excellent follow-up from the much anticipated 2019 Tuscan vintage. Since 1580, the wine cellars at Argiano have been renowned for its great Tuscan wines. Brunello di Montalcino is Argiano’s soul and identity: elegant, fine, and at the same time, full-bodied and built for aging, this wine is always made of 100% Sangiovese from soils composed of marl, ancient clay with high-level of limestone, planted at an altitude from 280 to 310 meters a.s.l. The vines range in age from 60 to 12 years old, trained in spurred Cordon, and farmed with organic methods, yielding a very quantity of grapes per hectare. 

According to Anthony Gismondi on Wine (est. 1979), 'The stylistic approach at Argiano prizes elegance above all else. These are real, terroir-driven wines from a winery that has come to understand its terroir in new ways, even after 440 years. It starts, of course, with renowned soil scientist Dr. Pedro Parra. The talented Chilean identified eight unique terroirs at the winery that includes Argiano’s oldest vineyard, now a single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino labelled Vigna del Suolo.

There have also been changes in vineyard management since 2012 when Argiano began the transition to farming organically. Biodiversity is a convenient buzz word for many in the wine industry, but it means something at Montalcino. The majority of the region remains covered by forest, with viticulture only one of many agricultural activities. Talking to Bernardino Sani, Argiano’s CEO & Winemaker, you get the impression that the vineyard is front and center. And the wines tell the same story, with the elegance and balance characteristic of winemaking consultant Alberto Antonini.'

Delightful aromas of juicy red cherries, strawberries, rose petals and wild bush, together with hints of juniper and ground herbs. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and crisp acidity. Zesty and piquant with beautiful balance and finish. Plenty of fruit at the end. Give it more time to come around. Try after 2027.

This is packed with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit, with floral, mineral, juniper and wild herb accents adding depth and complexity. There's plenty of energy and structure as well, providing excellent balance, with a long aftertaste. Best from 2027 through 2045.

The Argiano 2019 Brunello di Montalcino comes out stronger than the previous 2018 and 2017 vintages, thanks to the precision and focus of its fruit flavors in this balanced vintage. It shows ample depth and volume, with sweet cherry and blackberry that fold into softly toasted spice and earth. Floral hints of lilac and iris make brief but poignant appearances. Velvety tannins and a nicely concentrated mid-weight palate give good staying power. This is a 120,000-bottle release.

Crushed ashen stones, cloves, dried black cherries, rosemary and balsam herbs create a spice box display as the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino blossoms in the glass. This is surprisingly fresh and energetic, nearly juicy in character, yet refined and focused, with silken textures ushering in crisp wild berry fruits and orange tones that slowly saturate the palate. It finishes spicy and long, yet its energy never wavers, with grippy tannins that tug at the cheeks as licorice and cranberry notes fade.
