5 centuries of excellence: Brunello di Montalcino Argiano

5 centuries of excellence: Brunello di Montalcino Argiano

The wine cellar is the heart of the estate where Argiano’s greatest wines have been aged since 1580. Since 1888, the finest Sangiovese grapes of the property have been used to make Brunello di Montalcino, one of the world’s most famous red wines.

To make its 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 and tonneaux, while the second is spent in larger Slavonian oak barrels.

Argiano’s Brunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its elegance and its deep ruby red colour. It presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and sensuous body.
