Ruby with light aromas of red fruits and floral spice. On the palate elegant flavors of strawberry and juicy cherry with slight oaky spice notes. Fine tannins on a smooth balanced ending with mineral tones on the long finish. Not as big as past vintages but drinks well now.

Argiano always such a jewel in great years, and this one has finally emerged from an awkward spell. Floral and dry as a bone, seamless, great purity and notes of sweet oak and sour cherry. Ready to go with a 45 min decant, years ahead though.

Hints of raisin and spice. Full and velvety mouthfeel producing a rich and long finish.

Drinking older than it should have, and I'm not necessarily complaining.

Decant it for good 30-40 minutes and enjoy fruity Sangiovese from Tuscany. Nice wine if you let it breath.

Slightly stumbling and disjointed upon opening. Partially knitted together after decanting. Juicy red fruit. Soft violet. Basil. Nose felt muted and I found myself searching for more.
