The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wines converge in a circular central chamber.which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples. Read less

Big kick initially, but short finish. Recommended as a table wine, but above "house" quality. 85/100

Soft as velvet, with good structure, intermediate acidity and a lingering finish, this wine is a delicious example of the classic Argentine grape. Profoundly rich in color, shade of ruby-red and violet, exhibit great intensity and depth. The nose is abundant in fruit, with a touch of plum, blackberry and mulberry. Tannins are present in the initial mouth-feel, while the finish is decidedly round.
