Argiano is thought to be an ancient place, full of history. At the summit of a wonderful hill, south-west of Montalcino, the magnificent Villa of Argiano was built in the Renaissance by the Peccis, a noble family from Siena. In 1992, it was acquired by the countess Noemi Marone Cinzano.
The cellars underneath the Villa remain its most precious jewel. It's here that, since the sixteenth century, the wines can fine at constant temperature and humidity in absence of light and noise. The ageing takes place in small and medium size oak casks, but also French oak barrels have been introduced to allow a more subtle and balanced tannins extraction. The choice of woods for the ageing of the wine is of fundamental importance and is in constant evolution. In 2000, Argiano added a new wing to their vinification cellar with a modern laboratory, furnished with instruments up to date, and allowing the progress of a longtime back dating journey seeking for the absolute quality into the new millenium.
