2010, Argiano, Brunello Di Montalcino Presale 98 Pts!

Another outstanding Brunello value, grab this presale while we have some available! 2010's are one of the best vintage ever, because you could drink this wine now or 15 years from now and it will still be that good!

Our Impressions:
Argiano is a producer that has been around since 1888 and is one of the most renowned producers in all of Italy. This ancient estate has produced amazing wines in our long wine tasting history, and has consistently produced world class Brunello.

Argiano selects the grapes from its most noble vineyards and ages the wine in two different types of wood. The first year is spent in French oak barriques with different capacities, to strengthen the innate structure of the wine, while the second is spent in larger Slavonian oak barrels which allow the wine to achieve balance.

This Brunello is both powerful & elegant with an intense crimson color. It offers up great concentration, a structured mid-palate and a pleasing long finish that reminds you how good this wine really is! The mouthfeel is silky, and round with a fair amount of weight. The tannins are held in check with the fruit and are not dusty but rather silky but present. If you plan to open a bottle this year please decant the wine for an hour before serving, so the wine can fully open!

James Suckling, 98 Pts., Dec. 2014:
"An unforgiving and powerfully structured wine with fabulous grilled meat and granite stone character with dried berry and flower petal. Full body, chewy and intense. Great structure and extremely long and intense. Sexy austerity. Gets the juices going. Best ever from here. Reminds me of the great Argianos of the 1970s but now! Better in 2017 or 2018.”

Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, 95 Pts., Feb. 2015:
"Aged for 24 months in oak, the gorgeous 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a brooding, dark wine with great aromatic purity. The fruit tones are rich and penetrating, spanning from plum, prune and cassis to spice cake, tar and black licorice. The wine’s concentration is luscious and opulent. The oak element imparts lasting aromas of spice, toast and caramel but the wine already shows a good degree of integration that should help it continue its bottle evolution. Hold this wine until 2017."

Vinous, Antonio Galloni, 94 Pts., Feb. 2015:
“The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino jumps from the glass with notable energy and precision. Grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco, rose petal and mint are all beautifully delineated in the glass. Distinctly savory and mineral notes add complexity to the expressive, stone-inflected fruit in a chiseled, pulsating Brunello endowed with considerable energy. The tannins need time to soften, but Argiano’s 2010 is unquestionably a winner.”
