1996 Solengo, Argiano

Toscana IGT

$85.00 per Bottle


5 Bottles




"Wild thing. This Italian red is even better than the wonderful debut '95. It offers exotic and complex aromas of blackberry, violet, crushed raspberry, is full-bodied, and though very tannic, the tannins are coated with ripe fruit, and the long and caressing finish delivers even more fruit. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2000. 2,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Argiano's 1996 Solengo, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, and Syrah (500 cases produced), is a blockbuster effort. The wine boasts a saturated ruby/purple color, as well as an excellent nose of jammy blackberries, cassis, pain grillé, and spice. Full-bodied, with superb depth, a layered texture, low acidity, and a blockbuster finish, this is an impressively-endowed, smoky, rich, exotic, accessible, dry red that should age nicely for 12-15 years. Bravo to Argiano!" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #119

"Healthy red-ruby. Superripe, slightly roasted aromas of currants and nuts. Lush, thick, sweet and large-scaled, with concentrated currant fruit supported by a serious, rather Bordeaux-like structure. Very strong and long on the finish, with the tongue-dusting tannins hitting the palate quite late." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
