ARGIANO ARGIANO - Solengo - 2015

ARGIANO Solengo 2015

See the wine detail page

94 Points

The 2015 vintage gets the buy sign across Tuscany, and Argiano built in 1858 on a hilltop just southwest of Montalcino, is no exception. Solengo is a Super Tuscan blend of 50/30/15/5 cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, merlot and sangiovese, packed full of power but still offering a certain amount of Tuscan restraint in a California-meets-Tuscany style. That said, 2015 is an in-your-face vintage and bursting with savoury, ripe, black fruit and spicy, tobacco notes. This wine continues to show constant improvement over the last decade and is certainly a candidate for five to seven more years in the cellar. Serve now with rustic meat dishes.
