In a nutshell: An outstanding Merlot from the cooler Patagonian region of Argentina.
The lowdown: Merlot isn't seen quite so often in Argentina but this is, nevertheless, a class act giving a full bodied wine with fine tannis and bright finish. Opulent in every respect, particularly on the nose which is awash with dense, sweet, ripe black plums and notes of violets. The palate is velvety and quite indulgent but by no means over-blown.
in 2010 Santiago Bernasconi and his team renovated an old, beautiful little winery near the small town of Mainqué in Patagonia's upper Rio Negro valley and simultaneously breathed new life into the vineyards acquired at the same time.
This is a relatively small, venture encompassing old pre-phylloxera Malbec vines and a winery originally established in 1927. Whilst the first evervines in Argentina were planted in Patagonia Aniello's wines represent the modern face of this region - fresh, lean, elegant and beautifully concentrated.
