About the winery:

Argiano is certainly one of the icons of Montalcino, consistently releasing first-rate premium Brunello and Super-Tuscans that garner scores up to 98 points! They have the ultimate wine producing team which includes Sebastiano Rosa as General Manager of the Estate: having spent six years at the University of California at Davis, a two year tenure at Chateau Lafite Rothschild and three years at Sassacaia, he brings a strong mix of experience.  
In addition, Dr. Giacomo Tachis, the most well-known winemaker in Italy, was their Consulting Oenologist until his death in 2016.  His legacy includes Sassacaia, Tignanello and Solaia, to name a few. Finally, since 2013, the winery has been owned - and the wines made - by Bernardino Sani, a rising star in Montalcino.

Ratings & Reviews:

91 Points - James Suckling:
"Some wet herbs to the peppery berries and cherries. The juicy, medium-bodied palate is coated with fine, even tannins. Good, medium-long finish to close with a peppery edge at the end. Drink now." (Aug 2023)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Taut and linear in profile, this red delivers black currant, black cherry, vanilla and peppery spices. Tightens up on the finish, where the chalky tannins linger. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2025 through 2036. 12,500 cases made, 7,392 cases imported." - BS (Oct 2023)
