Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine laced with red cherries, tobacco, cedar and underbrush, all supported by a firm tannic spine. Argiano?s 2006 Brunello shows beautiful inner perfume and the structure to develop positively for a number of years. Floral notes appear on the vibrant, polished finish. The estate?s Brunello spent 12 months in French oak (which is mostly felt in the wine?s textural richness) and completed its aging in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Nice color with aromas of dust, cranberry and a hint of vanilla. Upon tasting it is lean with great acid and soft texture with flavors of dirt and cherry.
