Argiano Solengo 2013

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyVilla Argiano was built in 1858 on a hilltop just southwest of Montalcino, but it is a modern producer by any standards today, as translated by this super Tuscan blend of 50/5/25/20 cabernet sauvignon, syrah, petit verdot and merlot. It is deep, dark and brooding like the old lonely wild boar it is named after. The 2013 offers power and elegance with ripe black and red fruits, minerals, savoury black pepper and toasted oak in a California-meets-Tuscany style. The tannins are firm and the finish long. Cellar through 2018 or serve now with steak.Tasted: 14 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 87.50 private wine shops AB 93.00 private wine shops QC 80.00 SAQ Producer: ArgianoCSPC: 448621UPC: 8022931575121
