This just landed and I grabbed a bottle off the top right away. WOW!! This is just an insanely good wine (with a LONG way to go still) for under $30! It is hard to imagine a better wine for near AND long-term drinking from Brunello - hell, at this price you should be buying cases....
2008 is a terrific "drinking" vintage that is absolutely PERFECT to consume now. We were thrilled when we snagged this parcel and it is now HERE! Our advice is: BACK UP THE TRUCK!!! The winemaking and management at Argiano for this vintage included Sebastiano Rosa (LAFITE, SASSICAIA) and Giacomo Tachis (SASSICAIA, TIGNANELLO, SOLAIA....)....more on the winery below!
2008 ARGIANO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO $39.95 -- BUY 6 AND PAY $29.99!! WOW! JS93, AG92
average online is $53!! IN STOCK!!
JS93: "This is a pretty wine with roses, berries and raspberries on the nose and palate. What I like is its medium to full body with very well-integrated tannins and a pretty, clean finish. Such harmony and balance here."
AG92: "Argiano’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino graces the palate with serious depth. An unusually big, rich wine for Argiano, the 2008 is concentrated, yet carries its weight with considerable grace. Tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol and savory herbs all add complexity on the structured finish. This is a rare 2008 Brunello that will require at least a few years in the cellar. The 2008 spent two years in barrel followed by a year in cement prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023."
ABOUT ARGIANO: In 1581, at the summit of a hill, south-west of Montalcino, the Villa of Argiano was built among vineyards and olive groves. Over the centuries, this estate has been owned by important families such as the Buonsignori, Albizzeschi, Tolomei, Montanini, Sozzini, Colombini, Ugurgieri, and Pecci families. In 1992, the Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano acquired the estate and sought to improve the propriety’s winemaking under the oenological guidance of the famous winemaker Giacomo Tachis. This project strove to achieve the highest standards of quality and resulted in Tachis’ creation of the exceptional Solengo, a Bordeaux blend that exudes its privileged Montalcino terroir. Today, Adriano Bambagioni, Argiano’s supervising cellar master for over 20 years, and the world-renowned Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers, guarantee the quality and reputation of the Argiano estate. In 2013, the estate was purchased by Andre Esteves, who has left the winemaking team intact and redoubled efforts on continue the long-standing tradition of Argiano.
