Argiano Solengo 2012 - 1 Bottle
Intense, deep ruby to purple in the glass. The bouquet is rich and dense, full of ripe fruits and sweet spicy aromas. Modern and well-balanced in flavor with remarkable structure tempered by silky tannins. The concentrated aromas of berries and chocolate make the aftertaste last for minutes.
James Suckling - 93 POINTS
A red with berries, currants and dried earth aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh and dusty-textured finish. Lots of cedar, tobacco and coffee bean undertones to this. Give it two or three years to soften. A favorite Super Tuscan red from Montalcino.
Wine Spectator - 93 POINTS
A dense, monolithic red, saturated with black cherry, blackberry, cedar, leather and tobacco flavors. Well-integrated, presenting a tightly knit texture, this ends in a cascade of fruit, spice and earth notes. Complete but needs time. Best from 2018 through 2027. 1,250 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast - 90 POINTS
This full-bodied blend of 50% Cabernet, 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Syrah and 15% Merlot delivers aromas and flavors of black currant, tobacco, licorice, clove and dried mint. Tightly wound, dusty tannins offer support and need time to unwind. Drink 2017–2022.
