    Winemaker's Notes:

    Solengo is a modern, well balanced and full-bodied wine. It has a deep black, purple colour with a bouquet of ripe fruits, such as black currant and blackberry, infused with toasty oak. It is soft on the palate with great concentration of lush fruit nicely in balance with its fine, smooth tannins. The palate finds impressive structure and complexity tempered by exemplary tannic extracts. This high profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics with a sunny character. Its grace and gentleness enable an early drinking, nevertheless after a few years of bottle ageing, the wine will develop more complexity and depth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows black pepper, blackberry and mulberry aromas. Full-bodied, dense and rich, with seamless tannins and a silky, polished texture. Impressive length and structure. Built for aging. Reminiscent of the 1999. Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Best after 2012. 1,800 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    Solengo is a masterfully crafted super Tuscan blend of Petit Verdot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with seamlessly integrated wood notes that form a modern and proud personality. Aromas include black cherry, exotic spice and chocolate and the wine’s flavors are enduring and smooth. Cellar it for five more years at least.

    Argiano's 2006 Solengo is an explosive dense wine packed with blueberry jam, grilled herbs, tar and smoke. This is another structured, powerful wine that needs time for the tannins to soften but the wine is quite promising, even at this early stage. In 2006 Solengo has taken on elements of a Bordeaux-like classicism I find very appealing, although the Tuscan warmth inevitably comes through. Not a bad combination. The Sangiovese is gone, and Solengo is now 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
