Argiano Solengo 2004

SKU 00103


The vintage of 2004 hails a return to a more "classic" style than the two previous vintages of a singular nature. The 2004 Solengo has a deep black, purple colour. The nose is ripe, full and complex with notes of black currant and liquorice that are characteristic of the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine is full-bodied, mouth-filling, luscious and rich, with an opulent texture and beautiful structure. The aftertaste is long-lasting, with hints of vanilla, chocolate and wild berries.

Wine EnthusiastSolengo, a blend of Cab Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, has seemingly infinite depth thanks to its finely-tuned aromas of red cherry, toasted nut, cinnamon, almond and modern, smoky hickory. Elegant, vibrant and buoyant in the mouth, drink this wine after 2012.

Wine SpectatorPerfumes of blackberry and currant follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. A little tight now, but stylish. Needs time. Best after 2008.
