Argiano Non Confunditur Rosso Toscano OGT 2010

Just southwest of famed Montalcino in Tuscany, Argiano produces this attractive blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah, each fermented and aged for several months in French and Slavonian oak separately before blending.

Showing colors of ruby, scents of violet, smoke meat and cedar with parallel deep floral aromas, met by complimenting flavors of wood, spice, pepper, blueberry and leather. Medium-Full body with soft tannins.

Sampled at the Vias Portfolio tasting last week in NYC.
