Tasting Notes

95 points from the Wine Spectator: "Wild thing. This Italian red is even better than the wonderful debut '95. It offers exotic and complex aromas of blackberry, violet, crushed raspberry, is full-bodied, and though very tannic, the tannins are coated with ripe fruit, and the long and caressing finish delivers even more fruit." (12/98) 94 points Robert Parker: "Argiano's 1996 Solengo, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, and Syrah (500 cases produced), is a blockbuster effort. The wine boasts a saturated ruby/purple color, as well as an excellent nose of jammy blackberries, cassis, pain grille, and spice. Full-bodied, with superb depth, a layered texture, low acidity, and a blockbuster finish, this is an impressively-endowed, smoky, rich, exotic, accessible, dry red that should age nicely for 12-15 years. Bravo to Argiano!" (10/98) 91 points Setphen Tanzer: "Healthy red-ruby. Superripe, slightly roasted aromas of currants and nuts. Lush, thick, sweet and large-scaled, with concentrated currant fruit supported by a serious, rather Bordeaux-like structure. Very strong and long on the finish, with the tongue-dusting tannins hitting the palate quite late." (Jan/Feb 99)
