2001 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1024071 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full red. Highly complex aromas of medicinal black cherry, mocha, licorice and black olive, with a roasted aspect and a whiff of celery seed. Sweet, densely packed and concentrated, with lush, seamless dark fruit flavors spreading out to saturate the palate. A big, firmly structured Brunello that finishes with ripe tannins and intriguing hints of iron and peat. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2006)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A crowd-pleaser that starts in fifth gear with generous smoky, cedar-like notes, vanilla, cherry, dill and white mushroom. Equally complex and creamy in the mouth with a lush, berry-filled finish. Inner quote mark (4/2006)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of fresh raspberry and sliced mushrooms. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins. Long and structured. Needs time. (JS) Inner quote mark (4/2006)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Argiano’s deeply-colored 2001 Brunello di Montalcino offers a pretty, aromatic nose along with notes of super-ripe fruit, sweet toasted oak, vanilla, tobacco and earthiness on a medium bodied frame of notable length and elegance, closing with fine tannins. It strikes a nice balance between modern and traditional styles, offering the flavors of the former and the structure of the latter. Several recent bottles have all been outstanding. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2006)

K&L Notes

Argiano opens with a nose that is slightly more international than their style has previously been. Ripe, plumy aromatics with vanillin highlights are the dominant characteristics. On the palate the wine is very soft and broad with lots of fine grained tannins. Sweet, bright, fruit that is fresh and clean seems to come together in the finish and then is followed by some significant tannin. If you are a lover of the more international style, and like big powerful wines with upfront fruit and big structure, this wine might be your pass into Montalcino.
