Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyRecently retasted, and I can confirm we will be talking about the 2015 and the 2016 Brunello vintages for decades, and the wines will only get better while we do. If you have a cellar and the funding jump in if you want some real gems to lay down. Comparing the two years, I suggest there’s more fruit in 2015 and more structure and tannin in 2016. Both are outstanding years. Argiano opens with fragrant violet overtones with cedar, leather, anise, and wild fruit. The riot of flavours continues on the palate, 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, so put on a seat belt and get ready for the ride. Mushroom dishes are the match with meat or pasta.
