Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2013

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyA year down the road since I tasted it last, the 2103 is now fully ready to drink. The all 100%, estate sangiovese grosso grapes thrived in 2013, giving us richer Rosso di Montalcinos, starting with its deep colour and spicy menthol, earthy, cherry flavours. It was aged in used French oak barrels for the malolactic fermentation before spending about ten months in larger Slavonian oak barrels prior to bottling. The style is soft and supple but meaty, with cherry, gamey fruit. It will work well with a variety of grilled meats, heavier pasta dishes and aged cheeses.
