Solengo IGT Toscana 2011 – 94 points

This is rich and structured with lots of crushed raspberries and milk chocolate. it’s full-bodied, with chewy, polished tannins and a long finish. Very close to the excellent 2009. Needs a few years to soften: new wood is showing now and needs to come together. Better in 2016. James Suckling

Solengo IGT Toscana 2011 – 92 points

The 2011 ‘Solengo’ is gorgeous, bursting with fresh blueberries and black berries followed by spices, crushed violets, fresh minerals and a hint of cocoa. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and polished with an underlying layer of acidity providing a sense of freshness that carries over into the long caressing finish.

Non Confunditur IGT Toscana 2012 – 91 points

The 2012 ‘NC’ immediately opens with fresh dark raspberry, plum, dried floral, tobacco, spices and even hints of sweet toasted nuances all leap from the glass. The medium-full body is supported by silky tannins and offers a wonderful sense of freshness from the underlying acidity, which carries all the way through the juicy finish. This is an excellent value and wound be […]

Solengo IGT Toscana 2011 – 91 points

“An 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.“ – Bruce Sanderson – Wine Spectator 91 Points

Solengo IGT Toscana 2011 – 90 points

“A dark, inky wine, the 2011 Solengo possesses notable depth and volume. Grilled herbs, smoke, licorice and violets add complexity to a core of blue, blackish fruit in an extroverted, powerful wine endowed with serious intensity and resonance. The 2011 needs a few years to shed some of its baby fat, but it is already quite attractive. The structure of great vintages like 2010 is […]

Suolo IGT Toscana 2011 – 88 points

“A voluptuous, racy wine, Argiano’s 2011 Suolo is deeply marked by the qualities of the warm, precocious harvest. Dark red cherries, plums, spices, licorice and menthol all show elements of intense ripeness and sweetness, while the elevated alcohol is apparent throughout, but especially on the finish. Suolo can be a beautiful wine, but it needs more normal growing conditions to balance the inherent ripeness the estate seeks with […]

Suolo IGT Toscana 2010 – 88 points

“This expression of Sangiovese is dominated by wood-driven sensations. It opens with aromas of toasted oak, espresso and underbrush that carry through to the palate alongside a dense black-fruit flavor that stays just behind the oak. It finishes on an astringent, tannic note. “ – Kerin O’keefe – Wine Enthusiast 88 Points
