Winery: The vineyards of Argiano benefit from a favourable microclimate and an enviable position which contribute to the development of the vines. The extended vegetative cycle and ripening period are due to the altitude of the plateau, 300 m above sea level, which determines cool nights in the summer months. The generally moderate rainfall in Montalcino favours better, healthier ripening of the grapes, conveying greater concentration and aromas to the wine. Argiano is close to Mount Amiata, one of Tuscany’s highest peaks, which protects the entire area from bad weather. The combination of all these factors enables Argiano to make high profile wines and constantly good vintages, year after year.

Ageing: The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks, with the must fermenting in contact with the skins for about two weeks, extending this time to three weeks if the grapes come from the best vineyards, in order to obtain the best possible concentration. Rosso di Montalcino undergoes a second fermentation (like all red wines), which makes it smoother. It then ages in French oak barriques which have already been used once before and in larger Slavonian oak barrels until bottling time the following autumn. Argiano’s oenologist describes the Rosso di Montalcino as fresh, vivacious and full of “easy to taste” but generous fruity flavours that are sufficiently versatile to develop greater depth over the years spent in the bottle.
