Argiano, 2016 "Solengo" Rosso Toscano 1.5L
Origin: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (45%), merlot (30%), syrah (20%), petit verdot (5%)
Producer's Notes: Solengo is a modern, well-balanced and full-bodied wine. It is deep, dark purple in colour with a bouquet of ripe fruit, such as blackcurrants and blackberries, with a hint of toasted oak. It is smooth on the palate, with a great concentration of excellent fruit, nicely balanced with delicate, soft tannins. The structure and complexity in the mouth are outstanding, tempered by excellent tannic extracts. This high-profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics and a sunny nature. Its grace and delicacy mean that it can be drunk while young, yet it also has a remarkable ageing capacity.
