The Tuscan wine "Solengo" signed by Argiano is one of the labels on which the winery's efforts have focused in recent years. A great Supertuscan, conceived in his time by the legendary Giacomo Tachis, which demonstrates how international grape cuts have truly revolutionized the approach to wine in Tuscany during the 90s. Powerful, complex and austere, it is at the same time elegant and persuasive, thanks to an enveloping and punctual drink.

This exceptional red wine is a rather recent expression of the potential of Argiano viticulture compared to its Sangiovese-based red wines. 'Solengo', which in Tuscan means 'solitary boar', comes from the combination of Tuscan soil and French blends: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah

Solengo is a modern, well balanced and full-bodied wine. It has an intense dark purple color with a bouquet of ripe fruits, such as blackcurrant and blackberry, infused with toasted oak. It is soft on the palate, with a great concentration of lush fruit, well balanced with its delicate, soft tannins. The structure and complexity are exceptional on the palate, tempered by excellent tannic extracts. This high-profile blend has clear Mediterranean characteristics and a sunny character. Its grace and delicacy allow it to be drunk young, however, the wine has an extraordinary capacity for aging.
