Argiano Solengo 2020

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyThe legendary Giacomo Tachis wanted to make a super-Tuscan in Montalcino, so eventually the Bordeaux varieties were planted at Argiano at 280 to 310 meters, over marl and ancient clay, with a high proportion of limestone. Decades down the road, the pandemic vintage, a warm year in Tuscany, came to a finish favouring Super Tuscan blends like Solengo that mixes 50% cabernet sauvignon, 25% petit verdot, 20% merlot, and 5% sangiovese. Always a mouthful, this dense red specializes in floral notes, blueberries, black fruits, balsamic streaks, and spicy oak with fine-grained tannins that finish seamlessly and very long.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
