Argiano Non Confunditur NC Rosso Toscano 2019

Tuscany, ItalyNon-Confunditur is the Argiano motto found on the family crest. It translates to unique, or as winemaker, Bernardino Sani translates it from the Latin, “not to be confused.” It is a Super Tuscan mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and sangiovese, but the fruit comes off younger 15 to 20-year-old vines. Sani describes NC as a baby or junior Super Tuscan, and it fits both its organically farmed fruit and the wine’s price point. It is fermented in stainless steel, and by variety, in two and three-year-old oak barriques. Expect plummy, savoury, wild berry aromas with a touch of oak. At the same time, on the palate, it is a medium rich red with earthy, savoury streaks punctuated the riper merlot fruit; the firmer, more structured cabernet sauvignon; the richer syrah; and the freshness of sangiovese. It is the soft tannins that give the wine its license to be drunk sooner than Solengo.Tasted: 14 July 2021Tasted by: Prices:
