"An unforgiving and powerfully structured wine with fabulous grilled meat and granite stone character with dried berry and flower petal. Full body, chewy and intense. Great structure and extremely long and intense. Sexy austerity. Gets the juices going. Best ever from here. Reminds me of the great Argianos of the 1970s but now! Better in 2017 or 2018."~J.S.

Wine Advocate 95
"Aged for 24 months in oak, the gorgeous 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a brooding, dark wine with great aromatic purity. The fruit tones are rich and penetrating, spanning from plum, prune and cassis to spice cake, tar and black licorice. The wine's concentration is luscious and opulent. The oak element imparts lasting aromas of spice, toast and caramel but the wine already shows a good degree of integration that should help it continue its bottle evolution. Hold this wine until 2017.

Argiano is one of the landmark estates of the Sant'Angelo in Colle subzone in the southern part of the appellation. A double line of perfectly aligned cypress trees marks the road that leads to this iconic Tuscan property. Argiano has had its share of ups and downs in recent years and was purchased by foreign investors a few years back. The wine style has remained the same and Argiano continues to make some of the best Brunello on the market today."~M.L.

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino jumps from the glass with notable energy and precision. Grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco, rose petal and mint are all beautifully delineated in the glass. Distinctly savory and mineral notes add complexity to the expressive, stone-inflected fruit in a chiseled, pulsating Brunello endowed with considerable energy. The tannins need time to soften, but Argiano's 2010 is unquestionably a winner."~A.G.

International Wine Report 95
"The 2010 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino is an absolutely stunning effort, offering gorgeous aromas of freshly crushed dark cherries and blackberries along with sweet spices, fresh floral and minerals which are beautifully layered in the glass. This full-bodied Brunello shows notable depth and structure, continuing to impress with its gorgeous velvety texture all the way through the finish. Today, the wine is quite accessible with extended air contact, but readers may want to consider allowing some additional bottle age as it will also prove to be age worthy. Best 2017-2030."-J.D.
