The Argiano winery had its start already in the 16th century. It was the Sienese noble family Pecci, who at that time wanted to see the construction of a magnificent Villa di Argiano.
The Argiano winery - top quality wines for decades already
The villa also included a wine cellar. The whole thing happened on a hill facing the Orca River in the southwestern part of Montalcino. Soon they were to change ownership of the Argiano winery and even regularly. After the estate was taken over in the 1920s by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, the noblewoman focused on the production of high quality Brunello di Montalcino. With the support of Giacomo Tachis, a wine specialist from Tuscany, it was possible to produce even more top-quality wines.
The Argiano winery brought up to date with organic and modernity
In addition to the Brunello of Argiano, the eponymous winery dedicated itself to the production of the Super Tuscan Solengo. Moreover, the varietal Sangiovese Suolo has often been rewarded with an award. Since wine expert Giacomo Tachis was replaced by wine expert Hans Vinding-Diers in 2004, the focus at this estate has been on the organic cultivation of wine. Since then, the winery has mainly used state of the art wine processing techniques. The founding member of the Brunello Consortium has been extremely successful for several decades. How does it succeed? High-quality growths are stored in the old cellar facilities during the ageing phase. The winemaking facilities, on the other hand, are positioned in cellars with state-of-the-art technology.
A well-ventilated bouquet of grape varieties at Argiano
In addition, the Argiano winery is committed to hospitality. Meanwhile, the winemakers run the Posta l'Orciaia agritourism, which covers a total of 125 hectares, including 51 hectares of denominations, together with woods, vines as well as olive trees. Since the vineyards are all optimally aerated, wine of very fine quality thrives on site. The vineyards are lined with chalk soils and clay deposits, and with a distribution of about 7,000 plants per hectare, the cane density is comparatively high. The annual production is about 550,000 bottles. The repertoire of grape varieties grown includes:
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Sangiovese di Montalcino
