The estate of Argiano is located in the county of Montalcino, a small middle-age village, nestled on top of a hill at 500 meters above sea level. The poet Alfonso Gatto defined Montalcino "a village of confidence and at the same time a windowsill for the apocalypses".
This medieval jewel is set in a landscape of breathtaking beauty. Faraway from any industrial agglomeration and isolated from the main transit roads, it has been able to maintain its rural charm unspoiled.
The vine rows of the painstakingly well kept vineyards are concentrated on the median zone of the hill and alternate with olive grooves and thick arboreal maquis. They cover most of the territory around Montalcino. The county owes it's name "Mons Ilcinus", from the Latin "mount of holm-oaks", to the most common tree in the region, which is even represented in the old coat of arms of the city.
The evergreen spots of Mediterranean maquis, characteristic for the landscape, form a vast "green lung", fundamental prerogative to preserve the delicate balance of the territory - a territory that is known to be one of the most prestigious in the international wine panorama.
