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: 2010 Grapes: 100% Malbec Area: Michel Torino's own vineyards at an of 1,700m above sea level, in the Valley of Cafayate, Province of Salta, Northwestern Argentina. Cellaring: Will benefit of ageing up to 2-3 years, developing bouque and a harmonious combination of oak and fruit. Notes: Intense red ruby colour with violet hues. Distinct plum aromas typical of this variety, enhanced with oaky notes. Generous spicy and fruity flavours, good body and well integrated soft tannins giving a round finish. Serve: Ideal with grilled meats, spicy meat dishes and stews. Also good with ravioli, olives and tomato sauces or an excellent choice to drink by itself.

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 rose wines, Malbec 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: 2009 Grapes: 100% Malbec. Area: On the Bodega la Rosa Estate, where the air is filled by the perfume of roses planted by Martin Michel Torino to pamper his girlfriend. Vinification: The grapes were hand harvested. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Taste: A dry, well-structured wine with very lively fruit character. It also has hints of spice and berries and a clean, crisp finish. Serve: Young and fresh as an aperitif or with light meals.
