In the realm of exceptional vintages, 2016 is undoubtedly a standout for Tuscany. Argiano's recent refinements, guided by the expertise of Bernardino Sani and Alberto Antonini, have propelled this label back to the upper echelon of Brunellos. You can anticipate a floral rose introduction, leading to a harmonious blend of black cherry, wild strawberry, savory herbs, and subtle leather notes. What sets this vintage apart is its surprising elegance, alongside refined, dense tannins that give rise to a silky palate filled with a medley of mixed red berries and a smooth, mineral-laced finish. This vintage is undeniably impressive now, with the potential for long-term aging, making it a must-have for collectors.
