Rosso di Montalcino 2019

91 points, “The Argiano 2019 Rosso di Montalcino shows the slightly darker colour and richer concentration that is characteristic of wines from this vintage. The pretty Rosso offers good depth and width, qualities obviously rendered to the palate, with rich blackberry and dark cherry flavours. On the intensity continuum that sees Rosso on one side and Brunello on the other, this wine actually clocks in closer to the Brunello side of the spectrum. That makes this an especially interesting wine for those looking for Sangiovese power at an attractive value price tag. The wine ages in French oak casks for a few quick months. Best after 2022.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Argiano has been excelling in the Brunello district for some five centuries. With a little help from the superstar oenologist Giacomo Tachis, the world-famous Cinzano vermouth family and more recently investment from a group of Brazilian businessmen, Argiano has driven up the quality level from its prime position on the Montalcino hill.

Their Rosso di Montalcino is the kind of vibrant and unexpected wine that you fall back in love with each new time you taste it. Pulsing with cherries, red summer berries, orange peel, toasted coconut, menthol, antique furniture, coffee beans and freshly ploughed fields; it’s both racy and chunky. A cracker for pizza and pasta, but we also love its complexity with roasted vegetables, chilli or charred hispi cabbage in a smoky tomato sauce.
