The Gorgeous 2015 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino!
As many 2015 Brunellos are beginning to be being released (talk about timing), this is one that is always noteworthy and in this vintage- particularly delicious. The historic Argiano Estate in Montalcino produces one of the region’s finest wines- and the price is excellent!
An unwavering respect for both nature and tradition guides Argiano’s winemaking process. Combining the wisdom and experience of five centuries of winemaking history with the latest techniques in both the vineyard and cellar, Argiano’s wines are born out of a process that shows how respect for the land, attention to every detail and hard work can all culminate in creating a beautiful wine. In 2015, nature and this approach aligned beautifully!
I could go on and on about how great I think this wine is but I’ll keep it simple. My best price is $55.00 Net and here is the press that has been released so far:

Critical Acclaim for the 2015 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino
James Suckling ~ 95pts
“Very floral on the nose with plums, rose petals and freshly sliced porcini mushrooms. The palate is tight and compressed with beautiful ripe fruit, wet earth and cool, stone flavors. A structured and impressive wine. Drink after 2022.”
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate ~ 95pts
This is a terrific wine and one of the new releases from Montalcino that I happily include on a short list of top recommendations. The Argiano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a very lively bouquet that is already singing despite the young age of this new release. The wine opens to a dark ruby color with garnet highlights. The bouquet shows a large span of wild berry, earth, licorice spice and medicinal herb aromas. This vintage also reveals a pretty floral character with dried rose potpourri and lavender buds. After fermentation, the wine is aged slowly for 30 months in large oak botte (including 10-, 30- and 50-hectoliter capacity), thus restricting oxygen and gently slowing its evolution. However, the 2015 vintage is naturally expressive and exuberant, and that’s the main takeaway here.
Killer Deal on Iconic Sancerre
The Bourgeois family has been farming in the birthplace of Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre, for 11 generations. Although most families in Sancerre have split their holdings into smaller wineries, the Bourgeois made the choice to pool resources and make some of the most iconic Sauvignon Blanc in the world. At Murphy’s we’ve been fans of these wines for years because they are incredibly consistent as well. As the weather warms, there is nothing like the original benchmark Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre. They pair well with fish dishes, roasted chicken or picnicking at safe social distances.
We scored a deal based on the price before the French wine tariffs hit so we’ll be able to offer it for $26 a bottle.
“The 2018 Sancerre Les Baronnes chimes in with aromas and flavors of dried herbs, dried dirt, and Old World funk (the good kind). Pair it with raw oysters and a squirt of lemon.”
