Wine & Prosciutto

Tuscany is the most famous of all Italian wine regions, thanks to the romantic glamor of its rolling hills, cypress-lined country roads and hilltop villages. Yet Tuscany can be evaluated on the merits of its wines alone; its reputation is founded on such iconic wines as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Argiano Non Confunditur is produced near Mount Amiata, one of Tuscany’s highest peaks, which protects the entire area from bad weather. This factor enables Argiano to make high profile wines and constantly good vintages year after year. In total the estate is only 125 hectares.
Foods and entrees that usually pair with a red blend wine from Tuscany are: olives, tomato-based pasta, roasted meats and game, beef steaks, chicken in wine sauce, mushrooms, pancetta, prosciutto, pizza, smoked meat, and cold cuts.

Argiano Non Confunditur 2014 is a wine with wild rosemary and thyme flavors and black cherry and strawberry notes. It is a firm red that has elegant tannins and a dusty finish. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah.
