    Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016 - Argiano

    The Rosso di Montalcino DOC of Argiano, made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes, is a typical terroir wine from Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany.
    The wine has a ruby red colour, with a fascinating bouquet of red berries, generous fruity notes, violets and menthol, fresh and lively.   

    On the palate it is fruity, elegant, round, inviting and well balanced with gentle tannin. Long, soft finish. 

    It is already young and ready to drink, but has a good potential. After a few years of maturing, it can still gain depth. 

    This wine goes particularly well with the classic bruschetta, with veal, dark meat and cheese. 

    It is recommended to open the bottle 2 hours before consumption.

    Vinification of the Rosso di Montalcino DOC of Argiano

    Like Brunello, the Rosso di Montalcino DOC from Argiano is made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown on vineyards around the estate. A traditional terroir wine from the Montalcino area, which is treated with the same care as Brunello, from its care to its bottling.

    The Sangiovese grapes for this fine wine are harvested by hand and fermented for two to three weeks in stainless steel tanks with the skins, followed by a second malolactic fermentation, which gives the wine its gentle character. It is then first transferred to French oak barriques in the second pass, followed by further ageing in large Slavonian oak barrels. 

    The wine is bottled in the autumn following the harvest.

    The 2012 vintage was awarded 91 points by James Suckling and 89 points by Wine Advocat Robert Parker in 2013.
