Argiano'sBrunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its elegance and its deep ruby red colour. It presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and voluptuous body, and interesting, silky tannins. It unites potency and elegance and looks like having a promising future. With its tempting perfumes of red berries and its clean freshness, the complexity of this wine presents an excellent balance. To fully appreciate its qualities, decant the wine at least one hour before serving.

James SucklingFantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.

Wine AdvocateThe Argiano 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of interpreting the vintage and of showcasing its special microclimate on the southern flank of the Montalcino appellation. Both these elements point to warm-climate Sangiovese. and Argiano accepts that challenge with creativity and expertise. This is a proud expression of the grape with thick texture, determination and a succulent approach. Aromas of dark cherry, moist earth, tobacco and grilled herb lift from the bouquet. Bright acidity marks the close. The wine still carries its baby fat and needs a few more years of cellar aging in order to fully express itself.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant style, displaying cherry, currant, tobacco and earth flavors. The tannins are present yet integrated. This leaves a lasting impression of balance and sweet fruit. Best from 2019 through 2032.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of toast, dark spice, dried tobacco leaf and forest floor take shape in the glass. On the chewy, full-bodied palate, notes of black pepper, clove and espresso accent a core of dried black cherry while firm tightly-knit tannins and fresh acidity provide the backbone. Drink 2019-2027.
