(2007 Vintage) Full and velvety, with so much cassis and sweet tobacco on the nose and palate. A little hard on the long finish.
Tasted by hsacks on 3/22/2012 & rated 92 points: Deep red color. Aromas of black fruits, leather, chocolate and spices. Ripe, beautifully structured and integrated fruit in the mouth with excellent depth and length. Very sauve and elegant. In sweet spot of maturity. (113 views)

Wine & Spirits(1999 Vintage) Argiano, based in Montalicino, has produced a superb Solengo in 2005. This French oak-aged blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Syrah presents a lovely core of inner sweetness, with tons of complexity and distinctiveness. There is terrific energy and focus in its sweet dark fruit, smoke, licorice, and wild herbs, with well-integrated tannins and notable balance. This medium-bodied effort needs another year or two to come together, but it is already delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
