Lots of folks are familiar with Argiano; they make a whole bunch of Sangiovese-based wines in Tuscany. The ownership of the vineyards have traded hands between different Italian nobles for years and years, and now it's finally under the wing of the countess Noemi Marone Cinzano. Noemi ain't just a rich lady with a pretty name and a good eye for making investments in beautiful vineyards (perfectly situated in their own microclimate optimal for growing Sangiovese, we might add!). She also loves herself some good wine. Now it’s not on the official press sheets or anything, but the word on the street is that Suolo, the estate’s flagship wine, wasn’t originally meant to be drunk by you and me. Nope. This label was originally made solely for the countess herself until they realized just how much top-quality Sangiovese they had suitable for this bottling! Lucky for us, they decided to share the wealth. 100% Sangiovese Total production (btls): 2,500 Vinification: Full berries of Sangiovese (100%), de-storked but not crushed, entered the temperature controlled fermentation tanks. A traditional fermentation was carried out through using its own indigenous yeasts. The maceration lasts for 21 days at strictly controlled temperature. Ageing: Right after the drawing off, the wine was transferred for the malolactic fermentation into small new French oak casks. Great care was undertaken on the woods selection for the barriques. Only wood of the finest grain, i. e. from the central part of the oak tree, was used, so as to ensure an optimum maturation and exemplary tannins extraction. During the initial period various battonages were conducted to add complexity and suppleness to the wine, and the maturation in wood lasted for 15 months. The wine was bottled without further filtration but by simple decanting, and has completed its bouquet for another year in the bottle.
