Argiano Solengo 2011
Wine AdvocateArgiano's 2011 Solengo is a landmark wine that shows a super bright intensity threshold in the hot 2011 vintage. This is a full-bodied blend of 50% Cabernet, 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Syrah and 15 Merlot. The wine opens to dark intensity and an opulent style with thick, fleshy consistency and a firm tannic backbone. On the finish, the wine shows spice, dark chocolate, Morello cherry and pretty scents of grilled herb.
Wine SpectatorAn intense, fruit-filled red, showing a smoky cast to the cherry, licorice, herbal and spice flavors, with a fine, lingering aftertaste. Though bracing, this is also solidly tannic and needs time for all the elements to integrate. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2027. 1,250 cases made.
