The Argiano 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of interpreting the vintage and of showcasing its special microclimate on the southern flank of the Montalcino appellation. Both these elements point to warm-climate Sangiovese. and Argiano accepts that challenge with creativity and expertise. This is a proud expression of the grape with thick texture, determination and a succulent approach. Aromas of dark cherry, moist earth, tobacco and grilled herb lift from the bouquet. Bright acidity marks the close. The wine still carries its baby fat and needs a few more years of cellar aging in order to fully express itself.

Aromas of toast, dark spice, dried tobacco leaf and forest floor take shape in the glass. On the chewy, full-bodied palate, notes of black pepper, clove and espresso accent a core of dried black cherry while firm tightly-knit tannins and fresh acidity provide the backbone. Drink 2019-2027.

Dark red-ruby. Enticing strawberry and red cherry aromas and flavors are complicated by floral and smoky notes. Multilayered and suave, with a hint of alcoholic warmth (14.5%) on the rising, long and suave finish dominated by a strong smoky note.
Fantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.
