Argiano is a historic 250-acre estate with 120 acres of vineyards located near Montalcino, in Tuscany. Since 1992 it has been run by Noemi Marone Cinzano, whose family has owned the estate for generations. Argiano is best known for its Brunello di Montalcino, though it makes numerous other wines, including Solengo, a Super Tuscan made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah. Gambero Rosso, Italy’s leading wine journal, has praised the “beautiful historic estate” that “over the past few years has shown signs of great stylistic and qualitative renewal.” The journal has given the estate several ratings of 3 bicchieri, the journal’s highest rating.
