Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2008

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyIt was a difficult year in Brunello, so the concentration comes from small barrels rather than the vineyard. The nose is earthy, the palate firm and dry - almost old style. The flavours are a surprise, better than the nose for sure, offering leather, forest floor, cedar and branchy red fruits. The finish is medium-long with fading tannins. It’s ready to drink and we suggest you do that before the fruit is gone.Tasted: 14 March 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 60.00 specialty listing AB 60.00 private wine shops QC 44.00 Producer: ArgianoCSPC: 581553UPC: 8022931175062
