The bodega is situated in the foothills of the Andes in the Cafayate region around Salta in Northwest Argentina in one of the most scenic regions of this country. The vineyards are planted at 1,700 metres making them the highest commercial sites in the world. Cool climate plays a key part with great variations between night and day time temperatures, slowing down the ripening cycle and ensuring the development of good varietal character. The hallmark of Salta red wines is the great intensity of colour while the white wines, Torrontes in particular, are fresh and appealing. Michel Torino is well recognised on the international market and is renowned for its excellent wine quality, elegant label design and premium presentation. Vintage: 2007 Grapes: 50% Malbec and 50% Merlot Vinification: 80% of the wine was aged during 15 months in both French and American barrels. Alcohol. 14% R/S 3.1g/l Colour: Intense and shiny ruby red with violet edges and a profound background. Notes: Fruity aromas outstand with notes of plums and ripen morello cherries. Then, other sweet hints such as chocolate and vanilla from the oak spelling. Mint notes from the merlot hint at the end. Soft and silky entry, full of rounded and well balanced tannins. Plums and mint notes prevail together with a sweet tobacco aftertaste and marmalade notes from the Malbec.
