Argiano Non Confunditur Rosso Toscano 2011

P1040192
I recently wrote about Tosca Rosso Toscano which was a winner for us in the $9 – $15 range. Argiano Non Confunditur Rosso Toscano 2011 is a big hit in the $16 – $20 range. Hues of rich ruby red and dark plum fill the glass. The nose is a subtle balance of currant and anise. The alcohol at 14.5% is evident. The real strength of this full-bodied wine is its balance. The juicy dark fruit and soft tannins sing in beautiful harmony. Hints of spice and earthiness round out the palate. A nice long finish leaves a lingering trace of dried fruit. Argiano Non Confunditur is 40% Cabernet, 20% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah.
We paired Argiano Non Confunditur with a chunk of really good Parmagiano Reggiano cheese, followed by pasta alfredo with asparagus and cocktail-size meatballs. Perfecto!
