WINERY Is located in Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo) at one of the old vineyards facilities.

  • Familia Cassone Cabernet Sauvignon Obra Prima 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A bouquet of old books is the wine's first sensation, and that touch of funk is present in the taste as well. But the wine still has some attractive stone fruit to offer on the backs of some nicely structured tannins. If you're not a fan of funk, avoid, but lovers of old Bordeaux may find a new object of affection here. (AV 85, http://argovino.c... Read More

  • Familia Cassone Malbec Obra Prima 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Friends from Baton Rouge brought this wine over to New Orleans for an old friends get together in the Cresent City. Raved about this unknown Malbec. Wow! For the price, this wine is hard to beat! I am a fan of big California reds, but I am searching out where to find this little gem as we enjoyed this southern hemisphere juice very much. Read More

  • Familia Cassone Malbec la Florencia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Plummy jam and spice aromas, deep violet colors, full cherry and plum flavors, with mocha, and earthy notes. Smooth mouth feel with warm pleasant finish. Excellent value, and a nice wine all around. Not as heavy as typical Argentine malbecs at the price. Read More

  • Familia Cassone Malbec Obra Prima 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Familia Cassone is a tiny producer, and I was pleasantly suprised to find I could track down anything from them back here in the US. My wife and I tasted some of this before bottling when we were in Argentina, and it has improved notably. I'd be more inclined to rat this a 4.5 - it isn't quite the pinnacle of Malbec. But it is bold and unapolo... Read More

    Wine review by bope


  • Familia Cassone Malbec Obra Prima 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has the traditional dark purple color of a Malbec with a strong alcohol nose. Initially it has berry notes with mild tannins that leave a nice warmth in the back of the throat. We paired it with beets and chicken with a blueberry sauce and it brought out the warm berry flavors in the food. We love Malbecs and this is one of our favo... Read More
