This incredible Tuscan value red is made of a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese from the Argiano estate's loam, alluvial clay and marl with limestone soils at an altitude of  280 to 310 meters a.s.l. and farmed with organic methods.

Since 1580, the wine cellars at Argiano have been renowned for its great Tuscan wines. Brunello di Montalcino is Argiano’s soul and identity: elegant, fine, and at the same time, full-bodied and built for aging, this wine is always made of 100% Sangiovese from soils composed of marl, ancient clay with high-level of limestone, planted at an altitude from 280 to 310 meters a.s.l. The vines range in age from 60 to 12 years old, trained in spurred Cordon, and farmed with organic methods, yielding a very quantity of grapes per hectare.

According to Anthony Gismondi on Wine (est 1979), 'The stylistic approach at Argiano prizes elegance above all else. These are real, terroir-driven wines from a winery that has come to understand its terroir in new ways, even after 440 years. It starts, of course, with renowned soil scientist Dr. Pedro Parra. The talented Chilean identified eight unique terroirs at the winery that includes Argiano’s oldest vineyard, now a single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino labelled Vigna del Suolo.
There have also been changes in vineyard management since 2012 when Argiano began the transition to farming organically. Biodiversity is a convenient buzz word for many in the wine industry, but it means something at Montalcino. The majority of the region remains covered by forest, with viticulture only one of many agricultural activities. Talking to Bernardino Sani, Argiano’s CEO & Winemaker, you get the impression that the vineyard is front and center. And the wines tell the same story, with the elegance and balance characteristic of winemaking consultant Alberto Antonini.'

The ripe berries with delicate chocolate and hazelnut undertones are very attractive, as are the dusty tannins and herbal, berry and light tobacco undertones at the finish. Just a little more time will make it all the better.

Vibrant yet silky, boasting black cherry, blackberry, violet and iron flavors. The iron fist emerges by way of the firm tannins, and this finishes with a long aftertaste of fruit and dried herbs. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2030.

The zesty 2019 Non Confunditur wafts up with a darkly alluring yet also wonderfully fresh bouquet, as blackberries and currants give way to rubbed sage and crushed ashen stone. This is silky-smooth and soothing, casting a polished display of black and red berries across the palate, as mineral-driven tension forms toward the close. Sweet tannins create a sensation of youthful poise, yet they don't get in the way of the primary fruits that saturate throughout the long finish. Non Confunditur is refined in second and third-pass barriques and tonneaux, and it is composed primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon along with 20% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese, the Argiano 2019 Non Confunditur (with 100,000 bottles released) is a terrific value proposition with lots of freshness and easy aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, baked clay, some black olive and grilled rosemary. The wine goes down easily with a soft approach to the palate and medium-rich concentration. This food-friendly Tuscan red is aged in neutral oak, and it would make a great partner to grilled sausage and onions.
