James Suckling - 97pts
A reincarnation of Argiano’s IGT Suolo as a single-vineyard Brunello, without the heavy new-wood use, this is a sleek and exquisite wine. Lifted orange peel defines the nose, which also offers wild strawberries, nutmeg, lightly roasted coffee, glazed cherries and dried herbs. Finely tuned and only medium-to full-bodied on the palate, the tannins taking on a graceful, medium-chewy persona. Suave and delicate, yet long and powerful on the finish.
Decanter - 97pts
Classy and complex, with a core of black cherries boosted by layers of porcini, salami, liquorice stick, herbs and iron hints, leading to a restrained, long finish displaying lingering acidity.
