Pietro Marini Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

On the nose there are strong aromas of liquorice and raspberry that continue on the tongue, mingling with the flavours of cassis, vanilla, blackberry, and raspberry. Soft and rounded tannins give it a finish that will have you coming back for another glass. Excellent when paired with lamb, it's also a wine whose robust body will stand up to the accompaniment of spicy foods. 

Shaped by the high altitude and dry climate of the Cafayate vineyards, El Transito has produced a wine that manages that rare feat of tasting vibrant and fresh while also being rich and velvety smooth. On the nose there are strong aromas of liquorice and raspberry that continue to persist on the tongue, mingling with the flavours of cassis, vanilla, blackberry, and raspberry. Pronounced, rounded tannins give it a finish that will have you coming back for another glass. Excellent when paired with lamb, it's also a wine whose robust body will stand up to the accompaniment of spicy foods.

Pietro Marini - Bodega El Transito

At the begining of 2012 Tim Atkin, Master of Wine and award winning journalist, tasted over five hundred wines from Argentina.  One of the wineries that impressed him greatly was Bodega El Transito located in Cafayate, at over 6,000 feet, in the north-western province of Salta.  He includes this in his ten wineries to watch and he also rates the wines particularly highly.

The roots of the El Transito winemaking tradition stretch back to the end of the nineteenth century when the current owner's great grandfather, Pietro Marini, emigrated from Italy and settled in Cafayate.  The tradition has been handed down and is now in its fourth generation, in the very capable hands of Andrés Nanni.  

We are delighted to introduce you to the Pedro Moises and Pietro Marini wine brands.
