You may have enjoyed a taste of this Italian delight at last year’s Vancouver International Wine Festival. If not, you’re in luck. We are very pleased to announce that Argiano Non Confunditur 2013 is now available in BC!
Non Confunditur, affectionately referred to as “NC,” is named after the Latin term meaning “unique, unmistakable.” The beloved Baby Super Tuscan incorporates a blend of Tuscan and French grapes, giving the wine its unique character. The 2013 vintage is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) with equal contributions from Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot (20%). A shorter aging period is what gives NC its baby-brother status next to the famed Solengo, Argiano’s premium Super Tuscan.
Akin to Solengo, NC is a full-bodied wine with a flavourful palate and savoury tannins yet displays a crisp freshness that makes it approachable right away. This wine is meant to be enjoyed in the near future, however the flavours will reach greater depths with short to medium aging.
Argiano Non Confunditur Rosso Toscano 2013
92 Points – James Suckling
Dark berry, toasted-coffee and currant aromas and flavors. Full body, savory tannins and a flavorful finish. This is always a stylish and excellent Super Tuscan from mostly sangiovese. - August, 2015

Argiano's 2013 Non Confunditur is Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Sangiovese. The wine opens to a dark ruby color and a rich, velvety appearance. This is a very attractive blended red from Tuscany because it doesn't show the cloying heaviness or dense extraction you get with many of the other protagonists in the super Tuscan category. In fact, Non Confunditur is approachable and fresh with a good level of crisp acidity that would pair next to lasagna or pici pasta with wild boar sauce. - Monica Larner, January 2016
From the time of Ancient Rome to the present day, the Argiano estate has made the history of the territory of Montalcino, becoming one of its most prestigious and traditional elements, a valuable ambassador for its wines on the world stage and proud to have contributed to the birth of the Brunello Consortium.
