1997 Solengo Argiano

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



The profound 1997 Solengo vino da tavola (a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon with a tiny dosage of Syrah) is spectacular. Opaque purple-colored, it displays a fabulously sweet nose of creme de cassis, new saddle leather, toasty new oak, licorice, and flowers. This wine boasts amazing richness, a huge, full-bodied impact on the palate (yet no sense of heaviness), low acidity, gorgeous ripeness, and a finish that lasts for 35+ seconds. I predict a brilliant future for this compelling proprietary red wine. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2016. Wine Advocate.August, 1999

Argiano’s vineyards are in prime position on the Montalcino hill, in the region of Tuscany in Italy, and produce some of the finest Brunello di Montalcino wines. Our recent report on the very successful 2010 Brunello campaign can be seen on our blog. Argiano wines also include the acclaimed Rosso di Montalcino.
