This limited edition blend  of 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Franc, features Pelleriti's true passion for nature and terroir. After many years of making wines internationally and with over 26 vintages of experience, between Argentina and Bordeaux, France, Marcelo decided to return to the place where he made his first wine back in 1994, the 110-year-old farm he owns in La Consulta, Mendoza. Committed to this terroir, he wanted to create elegant wines and subtly reflect what he has learned throughout the years. The 2011 vintage resulted in wines of great aromatic intensity, especially fresh, with good acidity and great ageing potential. Every bunch of Malbec and Cabernet Franc is harvested manually and de-stemmed by hand. During micro-vinification, the barrel rotation are carried out by hand on a daily basis. Throughout the process, Marcelo Pelleriti and his team apply their experience and intuition to define the tasks necessary to make this exclusive and limited edition.This sophisticated tasting cuvee, showcases a bright, purplish, ruby red color. Excellent complexity on the nose, with notes of berries and dark fruit, such as plums, seductive floral hues of violet, and subtle spicy aromas. Great concentration on the palate, with savory round firm tannins and well-defined finish. A wine with great potential, elegant and complex. Aged 24 months in French oak barrels and 5 years in bottles. Ageing potential over 20 years, production 2,100 bottles. Suggested serving temperature between 15 –16 °C. Winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti
