Argiano - Non Confunditur 2008 Ml. 750
The estate of Argiano expands over 100 hectares in a fantastic rural environment, where rows of vines alternate with olive grooves and meadows, surrounded by luxuriant Mediterranean maquis.
The mount Amiata, in the South-east, acts as a natural protection against climatic inclemencies of unusual intensity, like cloudbursts and hailstorms.
The reasonable altitude and the consequent ventilation allow to take advantage of the presence of the warm winds from the Maremma, thus creating a mild microclimate, with many clear days during the entire phase of vegetation, essential for the healthy and complete maturation of the grapes.
Since 1500, the noble families produced wines from these vineyards, that were aimed only to their own consumption. Many international awards - some dating back to the far 1934 - proof the superb virtues of the agricultural production of Argiano. The excellent quality has further been consolidated in the last decades thanks to the production of prestigious wines of international fame.
Our second vintage of Non Confunditur shows exciting potential, with the inherent sweetness of the Merlot acting as a bridge between the firm earthiness of the Sangiovese grape, the spicy blackcurrant of the Cabernet and the warm red fruit of the Syrah. It has a rich inviting texture, and i s a great example of how a red wine from a very warm year can retain a lovely freshness, with any toasty flavours from wood aging positioned nicely in the background. In short, a generous, round wine for early to mid-term drinking.
