This is very structured and linear with currants, blackberries, dried citrus, chocolate and some smokiness. It’s full-bodied, but very tight and structured. Flavorful finish. Try after 2024.

The 2019 Solengo seduces with its richly decadent display of vanilla and mocha-tinged dark fruits and spices, which are wonderfully lifted by minty herbal tones and white smoke. This enters the palate like weighted...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2022

Opening to a thick, blackish appearance, the Argiano 2019 Solengo is definitely more concentrated and tightly stitched together next to the 2018 edition. This is a supersized blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit...

The Argiano estate extends across an area of about 125 hectares, occupied by vineyards, olive groves and natural forest. The birth of the estate is revealed by the construction of its villa, fashioned in the 16th century architectural style, and is thought to have been built between 1581 and 1596. Winemaking also developed at about the same time.

Ownership changed hands several times over the centuries among various noble families, until the estate came into the possession of Lady Ersilia Caetani Lovatelli in the 19th century. Under her enlightened management, the wines were promoted successfully in the finest cultural circles of the time.

In 1967, Argiano helped form the new history of Brunello di Montalcino when it participated with other historic wineries in the foundation of the Brunello Consortium. In 1992, the estate was acquired by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano who introduced important innovations into the winery’s management. The estate changed ownership again in 2013 when it was sold to a group of Brazilian businessmen, who continued to make improvements and expand the estate vineyard holdings.

The 2019 Argiano Solengo IGT is an exceptional red wine hailing from the renowned Tuscany region in Italy. With its captivating deep red color, this wine immediately commands attention and promises a sensory experience like no other.

Crafted as a proprietary blend, the precise varietals used in this masterpiece remain a well-kept secret. However, the wine expertly combines 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, 20% Merlot, and 5% Sangiovese to create a harmonious and complex flavor profile.

Upon opening the bottle, the Solengo reveals itself with a thick, blackish appearance, a testament to its concentrated nature. The nose is greeted with an array of inviting aromas, including luscious currants, succulent blackberries, and hints of dried citrus. As the wine unfolds, notes of chocolate and smokiness emerge, adding depth and intrigue to the bouquet.

On the palate, the Solengo showcases its full-bodied character, yet remains tightly structured, promising a long and evolving journey. Plummy fruit and ripe blackberry flavors dance on the tongue, accompanied by subtle hints of spice, tar, and tobacco. The wine's aging in new and used French oak for 18 months imparts a texturally important and aromatically intense expression, elevating its overall complexity.

Renowned wine connoisseur James Suckling awarded this vintage an impressive score of 96 points, acknowledging its exceptional quality and potential for aging. Similarly, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate rated it with a remarkable 95 points, highlighting its concentration and improved tannin management compared to previous vintages.

Vinous also showered praise upon the 2019 Solengo, awarding it a score of 96 points. Their tasting note describes a decadent display of vanilla and mocha-tinged dark fruits, lifted by minty herbal tones and white smoke. The wine's fine-grained tannins and long, staining finish leave a lasting impression.

While this wine is already a remarkable delight, it is recommended to exercise patience and allow it to reach its full potential. Experts suggest trying the Solengo after 2024 to fully appreciate its flavor development and intricate nuances.

In conclusion, the 2019 Argiano Solengo IGT is a remarkable red wine that exemplifies the excellence of Tuscany. With its alluring aromas, complex flavor profile, and accolades from esteemed critics, this wine is a true masterpiece that will only continue to evolve and delight with time.
