Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyWe will be talking about the 2015 and the 2016 Brunello vintages for decades, and the wines will only get better while we do, so jump in if you want some real gems for the cellar. To simplify, there is more fruit in 2015, and more structure and tannin in 2016, but they are both outstanding years. Argiano opens with fragrant violet overtones with cedar, leather, anise, and wild fruit. On the palate, the riot of flavours continues, fighting to get to the front of an overstuffed glass of flavours. Fresh, and more importantly, alive and vibrant, this is a winner with a long future. Put on a seat belt and get ready for the ride. I want some pici and mushrooms, the local pasta with this gem. Drink through 2045.Tasted: 16 April 2021Tasted by: Prices:
