Denne rødvin er noget helt særligt, og det er blandt andet på grund af den særlige lagring. Her er tale om 24 måneders lagring på franske barriques, som fremmer fedmen og blødheden. Det giver for eksempel en meget mættet duftkoncentration og smag.
Du vil opleve noter af moden frugt med en høj generøsitet, og druesammensætningen består af 100 procent Sangiovese. Serveres med fordel til de tungere middagsretter som okse, vildt og kalv.
South-West of the Montalcino hill, a great classic of finesse and elegance. Marasca cherry on the nose, then officinal notes of laurel, with a crisp finish, on the notes of orange peel. The mouthfeel is dense and thick, the tannins savoury-salty, with a fruity-officinal return.
Very attractive floral and fresh aromas to the plums and cherries, following through to the palate. Flavorful and gorgeous, yet lively and focused. Lovely 2017. Drink now or hold.
International Wine Report
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is incredibly exotic in both spice and floral tones, and an intense wave of cherry and raspberry preserves mixes with hints of tangerine and cocoa that pull you close. This is so deep and fleshy yet energetic in feel, boasting a core of bright acidity that enlivens the experience and motivates the tart wild berries, zesty citrus and inner rose tones. Light tannins linger, yet the 2017 remains juicy and fun, delivering gobs of immediate pleasure though lasting notes of red currant, licorice and clove. Sadly, there will be no Vigna del Suolo from 2017, as all of that juice was added to bolster the Brunello. Even so, production was down by 35%.
The Argiano 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of considerable bandwidth with lots of dark fruit, rich plum and spice. It carries medium fruit weight and concentration that proves more than enough to surround and soften the spicy oak notes and toast that also play an important role in this hot-vintage Brunello. The results are plump and slightly round, but you also get the acidity and the tannic structure of an age-worthy Sangiovese. Organically farmed fruit is selected from across the best parcels of the estate, and some of the vines are up to 55 years old.
