Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2014

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyThis rosso is made from 100 percent estate sangiovese grosso grapes. Argiano makes one of the richer Rosso di Montalcino, but it remains to be seen how the style will change with consulting winemaker Alberto Antonini’s influence. We suspect the fruit will be purer and the acid brighter in the coming years and there will be less oak influence. In 2014, a difficult year in Montalcino, the wine is a mix of fresh, spicy menthol, earthy notes and soft black cherry. Best with duck or meat pasta dishes to take on the earthy, leather notes.Tasted: 14 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: NS 35.00 NSLC BC 33.73 private wine shops AB 33.00 private wine stores QC 26.70 SAQ Producer: ArgianoDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
