in the world, and it is grown extensively in every
wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia.

temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy
soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes.

tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.

unique personality: aromas of very ripe red
fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a very

notes. Red fresh
such as raspberry, strawberry and cherry combine
a spicy aroma given by the use of oak. This
wine can be cellared up to four years.
