Toscana IGT Solengo 2019
The Argiano estate is located in Montalcino, in the province of Siena.
It develops around the historic core of the buildings, for a total area of about 125 hectares, with vineyards, olive groves and woods.
From the times of Ancient Rome to the present days, the Argiano estate has made the history of the Montalcino area, becoming one of its most prestigious and traditional realities: a precious ambassador to the world of its wines, proud to have contributed to the birth of the Consorzio del Brunello.
The management of the vineyards is based on respect for the environment, with the utmost consideration for the elements of the landscape. Agricultural practices are applied in the vine rows to ensure minimal impact on nature, so as to respect the tradition of the five centuries of history that have made Argiano great.
The Toscana IGT Solengo 2019 is a powerful one. Spicy on the nose, with pleasant notes of berries. Soft and velvety on the palate, with dense tannins and excellent persistence.
The 2019 vintage was characterised by a cool spring with some frost and an unstable beginning of summer with some heavy rain at the very beginning of July; rather high average temperatures recorded for the month of August. The autumn season was excellent and allowed for an excellent ripening recovery.
