Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2012 Pre-Release

James Suckling has this to say about the 2012 Argiano Brunello: “Fantastically complex aro­mas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.” He gave it 96 points.

The grapes from each parcel of vines treated in separate batches. After destemming and a light pressing, maceration and fermentation tool place at controlled temperatures in stain­less steel tanks for two to three weeks. Only the indigenous yeasts naturally
present in the grapes were used. When fermentation was complete, the wine was
transferred to concrete tanks, in which the malo-lactic fermentation was completed.

The wine then spent twenty-four months in large Slavonian oak barrels. (Previously,
Argiano Brunello aged for twelve months in French barriques, with a second year in
Slavonian oak barrels.) The wine was then rested in concrete tanks for a few weeks, and then bottled without filtration in May 2015.

The total production was about 20% less than the legendary 2010 vintage. Shipping in May/June 2017.
