- Cellar 8 - 10 years (2023-2025)
- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
Near opaque dark red black colour with a dark red hue. Lifted aromas of dark to black cherries are intermixed with some dried herbs, lightly scorched earth, spicy cedar and a faint hint of leather. Medium bodied with good richness and a robust structure the palate features flavours of ripe dark cherries, a touch of liquorice, earthy leather like characters, dried meats, cedar and spice. A firm tannin structure imparts some grip and chewiness on the finish. Long spicy dark cherry, dusty cedar, dried meats and earth aftertaste. Requires some patience.
Cellar 8-10 years.
An unforgiving, powerfully structured wine with fabulous grilled-meat, granite, dried-berry and flower-petal character. Full-bodied, chewy and intense. Great structure. Extremely long and intense. Sexy austerity. Gets the juices going. Best ever from here. Reminds me of the great Argianos of the 1970s. Better in 2017 or 2018.
Argiano is one of the landmark estates of the Sant'Angelo in Colle subzone in the southern part of the appellation. A double line of perfectly aligned cypress trees marks the road that leads to this iconic Tuscan property. Argiano has had its share of ups and downs in recent years and was purchased by foreign investors a few years back. The wine style has remained the same and Argiano continues to make some of the best Brunello on the market today.
Aged for 24 months in oak, the gorgeous 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a brooding, dark wine with great aromatic purity. The fruit tones are rich and penetrating, spanning from plum, prune and cassis to spice cake, tar and black licorice. The wine's concentration is luscious and opulent. The oak element imparts lasting aromas of spice, toast and caramel but the wine already shows a good degree of integration that should help it continue its bottle evolution. Hold this wine until 2017.
Monica Larner – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino jumps from the glass with notable energy and precision. Grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco, rose petal and mint are all beautifully delineated in the glass. Distinctly savory and mineral notes add complexity to the expressive, stone-inflected fruit in a chiseled, pulsating Brunello endowed with considerable energy. The tannins need time to soften, but Argiano's 2010 is unquestionably a winner.
