Localization: Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Notes: Brunello is Argiano’s soul and identity: elegant, fine, and at the same time, body and long aging.
It shows a lovely transparency to its appearance and follows with lifted red fruit aromas, cassis, wild cherry and blue flower.
Notes: Spurred Cordon, organic farming, small quantity of grapes per hectare
The Domain: After this estate was acquired by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, the philosophy changed whereby quality and personality became the dominant priorities. In order to achieve these goals, Sebastiano Rosa was appointed as General Manager of the Estate. Having spent six years at the University of California at Davis, a two-year tenure at Chateau Lafite Rothschild, and three years at Sassacaia, he brings a strong mix of experience. In addition, Dr. Giacomo Tachis, probably the most well-known winemaker in Italy today, became the oenologist. His legacy includes Sassacaia, Tignanello and Solaia, to name a few. Argiano's vineyards are located in the Montalcino area where a perfect microclimate assures a super ecological system. Varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese are planted. These grapes have not traditionally been part of the Montalcino area.
