James Suckling, 96 Points 

" Blackberries, spice, walnuts and currants on the nose, following through to a full bodied, tight and dense palate, yet it’s agile and linear at the finish. Firm, layered tannins. This needs time to come around in the bottle. One for the cellar. Try after 2024.

Wine Spectator, 93 Points 

"An element of wild herbs graces the black currant and black cherry flavors in this robust red, which is firm and compact on the iron- and tobacco-tinged finish, with a sense of grace. Needs time to absorb the tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2024 through 2040." 

Wine Advocate, 93 Points 

The Argiano 2018 Solengo is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, 20% "Merlot and 5% Sangiovese that flaunts the richness, dark concentration and spicy flavors of a full-throttle Tuscan blend, or the kind of wine that is universally attractive to lovers of hearty red wines for a steak-and-potato kind of night. Solengo's black fruit richness is backed by lots of oak spice and toast. With 60% new French oak (and 40% second-year barrique) for 18 months, this wine embraces a contemporary feel with tight tannins (both from the fruit and the oak) and a rich, long finish. I recommend putting this wine aside for a few more years to let that tannic bitterness subside. Best after 2024." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"The Supertuscan of Montalcino. Since 1995 it represents power and boldness, pride and longevity.  This is a balanced and harmonious Solengo with a nose of spice and berries. It is velvety on the palate with great structure and a long finish." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
