Bodega Los Haroldos is owned by ‘Familia Falasco’ who have over 70 years’ experience producing fine wines from premier high altitude vineyard sites in Mendoza.
Their history began in 1939 when Octavio Rufino Falasco emigrated from Italy to Argentina and initially sold his wine from a basket on the front of his bike. With time and hard work he bought more land and established a winery in San Martin, East Mendoza.
Today third generation Jorge Daniel Falasco leads the destiny of this family business and many of the fourth generation work with him, ensuring the future of the family’s involvement in the production of fine wines.
The wine is aged for 6 months in American oak barriques.
Ripe red and black fruits, smoke and chocolate all show on the forward and intense nose. The palate has elegant tannins and subtle acidity that all underpin the brambly fruit, sweet smoke and savoury meatiness on the finish.
The smoky elements of this wine will work beautifully with the natural flavours of barbecue (especially wood fired). Also pizza and pasta dishes will do a treat
