Argiano, Solengo, 75cl
Giacomo Tachis was known as the Father of 'Super Tuscan' wine & was credited as one of the pioneers who kick started the Italian wine revolution, so with that in mind, Solengo, which is Giacomo's brainchild, surly must be as legendary as the man himself? it is.
But don’t just take our word for it; James Suckling awarded it 97 points, as one of his top 100 wines of 2017: "Fantastic aromas of flowers such as violets and roses with dark purple fruits and hints of stones, too. Full body with ultra-fine tannins and a long and linear finish. This is a return to the great Solengos of the mid-1990s. The best since 1997. Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Petit Verdot 30%, Merlot 15% and Sangiovese 5%. Drinkable now but better in 2020."
Probably the best ever vintages in our opinion, buy it now, this is astonishingly good value for a wine of this quality & reputation.
