About This Wine
Can Tuscan and French grapes co-exist peacefully?
They can... and they do... when they’re placed in the capable hands of the vintner at Italy’s Argiano estate, located in the Tuscany growing region. The wine known as “Non Confunditur” marries French varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah with Italy’s favorite variety, Sangiovese.
“We baptized this wine as ‘Non Confunditur’ to honor the prestigious and glorious past of Argiano,” a winery spokesperson tells us. “It’s the Latin term written on Argiano’s crest, and was the motto of the former owners, the Lovatelli d’Aragona family.”
So much for the name; what about the wine? It’s absolutely delicious, not to mention quite versatile as a food companion. Members of our tasting panel recommended everything from hearty stews to an array of homemade casseroles as potentially sublime pairing partners. “Non Confunditor” is one of those wines that promotes harmony not only among winegrape varieties, but also among cooking styles.
