Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2016
In 1967, Argiano, which is the south west quarter of the Brunello appellation, was one of the founder members of the Consorzio di Brunello. In 1992 Contessa Noemi Marone Cinzano bought the estate, and engaged the world-famous Giacomo Tachis (the creator of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia) as consultant oenologist. In fact, it was he who launched Argiano’s Super Tuscan, Solengo. Under his guidance, too, the Sangiovese vineyards were extended and the cellars modernised. The vineyards have been mapped into six separate zones by the acclaimed Chilean terroir consultant, Pedro Parra. In consequence of the switch to organic methods, the bee population has soared throughout the estate, which covers 125 hectares, 70 of which are under vine.
This wine must be made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso (usually harvested between the end of September and the middle of October), it ferments on the skins in stainless steel for 2 or 3 weeks. The malo-lactic fermentation follows smoothly on from the alcoholic. The wine is then aged in large French oak barrels for 30 months.
