Brunello di Montalcino is such an iconic name that we wanted to represent it, but finding one which could drink now at the right price was the challenge. Put simply, this did not just meet our expectations; it completely exceeded them. Decant for the full perfumed experience. Founded in 1879, Tenuta di Argiano is now manged by Sebastiano Rosa and is ownded by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano. Sebastian is hugely experienced having begun his career in California and worked in the great wineries of Lafite-Rothschild and Sassicaia. His skills and expertise are clear in their wines and this 2015 expression is one of the best. Their vineyards are located on the 1000ft Montalcino hill sitting on a south-facing limestone plateau, where the elevated position and limestone soils create wines of cool elegance and mineral finesse.
