Rosso de Montalcino Argiano 2017
Rosso di Montalcino, made with 100% Sangiovese grapes like Brunello, is another expression of the tradition and terroir of Montalcino. Argiano’s Rosso di Montalcino has a noble pedigree and is produced with the grapes grown in the Sangiovese vineyards that extend around the estate. The grape-variety is Sangiovese Grosso, a selected clone which has adapted perfectly to the soil at Argiano; this wine receives the same care and attention devoted to their Brunello, from vineyard management to bottling.
Rosso di Montalcino is deep ruby red in colour. It is medium bodied with a good concentration on the mid-palate. Elegant in the mouth, it is well balanced with tempting flavours of red berries, violets, menthol and earthiness.A generous wine with smooth, velvety tannins. The perfect companion at mealtimes, it is ideal paired with red meat, veal, bruschetta and all kinds of cheeses and pasta dishes.
