2015 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2015
Appellation: Brunello di Montalcino
95+ (WA)
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.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

This is a terrific wine and one of the new releases from Montalcino that I happily include on a short list of top recommendations. The Argiano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a very lively bouquet that is already singing despite the young age of this new release. The wine opens to a dark ruby color with garnet highlights. The bouquet shows a large span of wild berry, earth, licorice spice and medicinal herb aromas. This vintage also reveals a pretty floral character with dried rose potpourri and lavender buds. After fermentation, the wine is aged slowly for 30 months in large oak botte (including 10-, 30- and 50-hectoliter capacity), thus restricting oxygen and gently slowing its evolution. However, the 2015 vintage is naturally expressive and exuberant, and that's the main takeaway here. ML

Wine Spectator

Focused cherry and plum flavors mark this rich red, with a hint of orange peel. Flashes of earth, leather and iron lend complexity, while the firm structure adds grip. Exhibits fine balance and length. Given the fruit, this should be approachable soon. BS

James Suckling

Very floral on the nose with plums, rose petals and freshly sliced porcini mushrooms. The palate is tight and compressed with beautiful ripe fruit, wet earth and cool, stone flavors. A structured and impressive wine.

Antonio Galloni

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows dusty black cherry, complemented by sweet spices and herbs, as hints of dried orange, leather and dusty earth that forward. On the palate, I find velvety textures, ushering in ripe red and black fruits; yet there’s a wonderful balance here, as the wine is lifted by brisk acids, and a mix of savory, spice and minerals notes. The finish is long and structured, buzzing with mouthwatering acid and spice, as dried cherry lingers amidst a coating of youthful tannin. The 2015 Argiano is just a baby, slowly shaking off the wood it was aged in, and it is perfectly balanced. EG
