Argiano Non Confunditur 2016
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
NC is a wine with a decisive, full-bodied character, smooth tannins and a persistent finish. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese reveals an exciting potency, with the innate gentleness of Merlot creating a bridge between the evident earthiness of Sangiovese, the aromatic blackcurrant flavor of Cabernet and the warm red berries of Syrah. The result is a generous, rounded red wine, destined for short to medium ageing, with delicious aromas of currants and generous fruit flavors, versatile enough to develop in greater depth during long months in the bottle.
This is beautiful on the nose, showing lots of brambly notes, ranging from undergrowth and forest floor to elderberries, raspberry bush and dried herbs. Full-bodied, tight and very elegant, framed by linear tannins and bright acidity. Drink in 2020.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Sangiovese (25%), Merlot (20%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the 2016 Non Confunditur is an entry-level Tuscan red from the Montalcino area in the southern part of the region. My initial impression of the wine was a bit off-putting, mostly because of a bright berry bitterness that jolts the palate and makes your mouth pucker. With just a few vigorous swirls, that hard edge had lifted. Despite those rough beginnings, I am happy to recommend this wine for those seeking value buys from this beautiful part of Italy. Some 150,000 bottles were made.
