Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
James SucklingFantastic aromas of orange peel and dark berry with plenty of plum and cherry. Sweet tobacco and mushrooms. Full body, juicy and fruity with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Complex and gorgeous. Fine and very long.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows laser focus and a precise delivery of aromas that makes an immediate and satisfying first impression. This is a delicately assembled wine that shows the deft hand of the winemaking team behind the scenes. Bright fruit and cherry is connected, in a careful embroidery, to spice, leather, tar and cured tobacco. There are subtle tones of ash and crushed mineral as well.
Wine SpectatorLight-bodied and lacy, this red offers cherry, strawberry and sweet spice flavors, with hints of earth, iron and tobacco. Balanced, with a moderately long finish. Drink now through 2028.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of coconut, French oak and red berry carry over to the rather lean palate along with dried sour cherry, espresso and exotic spice. Bright acidity and dusty, drying tannins provide the setting.
