About the winery:
Argiano is certainly one of the icons of Montalcino, consistently releasing first-rate premium Brunello and Super-Tuscans that garner scores up to 98 points! They have the ultimate wine producing team which includes Sebastiano Rosa as General Manager of the Estate: having spent six years at the University of California at Davis, a two year tenure at Chateau Lafite Rothschild and three years at Sassacaia, he brings a strong mix of experience.  

In addition, Dr. Giacomo Tachis, the most well-known winemaker in Italy, was their Consulting Oenologist until his death in 2016.  His legacy includes Sassacaia, Tignanello and Solaia, to name a few. Finally, since 2013, the winery has been owned - and the wines made - by Bernardino Sani, a rising star in Montalcino.

About this Wine:
Non Confunditur’s initials N.C., are often thought to refer to Noemi Cinzano, Argiano's longstanding owner. The truth however is 'Non Confunditur' is the Latin term written on Argiano’s crest and was the motto of the former owners, the Lovatelli Gaetani d'Aragona family. We baptized this wine as Non Confunditur to honor the prestigious and glorious past of Argiano. Non Confunditur is a unique marriage of both Tuscan and French grapes. Since 2002, NC has taken its place next to the best Tuscan blends.

Wine Maker Notes:
Lively ruby red color with intense aromas or red fruits like plums, cherries with raspberry, blackcurrant and green bell pepper and hints of coffee. On the palate is dry with medium alcohol and well-integrated tannins. The aftertaste is long and persistent.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
" 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. Try after 2021." (May, 2020)
