I don't recall the last time I saw a winery earn the #1 and #5 slots in Wine Spectator's recently released Top 100 Brunello di Montalcinos Of The Year.
Extremely Limited: We have a limited amount of Argiano's 2018 Brunello di Montalcino, which took the #5 slot, and an even smaller amount of Argiano's "Vigna del Suolo" Brunello di Montalcino, the #1 Brunello!
"Argiano is back on track with this excellent value 2018 Brunello." Decanter
"Pure and noble, the 2018 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino is compelling in its expressive layers yet remains transparent, with aromas of fresh leather, red cherry, cedar, anise, and fresh pine all intertwining... with notes of blood orange, raspberry, saline minerals, and mouthwatering acidity. It is a gorgeous wine to hold another couple of years." Jeb Dunnuck
The Brunellos from 2018 are "charming and fruit-forward... they will over-perform, over-deliver, and thrill." Vinous
Located in Southwest Tuscany, Argiano produced some of the finest Brunello of the vintage. Welcome, less extreme 2018 temperatures have the best Brunellos returning to the classics, where dimension and charm take center stage.
We love how the wines balance power and elegance. We also love the expressive leather, menthol, pine, and earthy notes produced by the estate's Sangiovese.
You can order the 2018 Argiano "Vigna del Suolo" Brunello di Montalcino, the #1 Brunello di Montalcino Of 2023, here. Otherwise, you can order the #5, "excellent value" Argiano Brunello below.

"Rose, strawberry and cherry are the main themes in this red, along with wild herb, mineral and cut hay accents. Racy and full of energy."
