100% Sangiovese from Finca La Santa Maria Vineyard, Los Campamentos, Rodríguez Peña, Junín, Mendoza, Argentina.
Vines planted 630 meters above sea level. The soils at the base of the Andes tend to be young and alluvial with a high proportion of sand and loam and are low in organic material. The sandy loam is underlain with river rocks offering good drainage.
20% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months.
Bright garnet colour, with deep hues. Its aromas are fruity, with a touch of cherries and fresh plums, characteristic of this grape native of Tuscany – Italy. On the palate, a nuance of acidity makes it vibrating and fresh. Harmonious, elegant and complex.
