Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby color, assembles a perfect combination of power and elegance. Good structure and full body are accompanied by captivating perfumes of fruits and clean freshness. The wine while quite developed, maintains a remarkable complexity, a good structure and an optimal equilibrium. Perfect for grilled, roasted, and stewed red meat as well as stewed guinea fowl and duck.

Critical Acclaim

V 93
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine laced with red cherries, tobacco, cedar and underbrush, all supported by a firm tannic spine. Argiano’s 2006 Brunello shows beautiful inner perfume and the structure to develop positively for a number of years. Floral notes appear on the vibrant, polished finish. The estate’s Brunello spent 12 months in French oak (which is mostly felt in the wine’s textural richness) and completed its aging in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Rich, with a glycerol-like feel to the texture, showing plum, cherry, tobacco and black tea notes, all backed by a solid structure. The acidity and tannins shore this up as the finish glides on. Best from 2013 through 2025.

What a nose with perfumes, blueberries and blackberries. Very perfumed. Full body, with fine tannins and a bright acidity. Love the silky texture to the wine. Wonderfully polished texture. Best after 2013.
