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.
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 aging, 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.
