Pietro Marini Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah Roble 2013

An intense red colour that catches the eye. Spiced fruits and red peppers fill the mouth, while the Syrah portion of the blend brings strong tannins and a smooth roundness. Oak ageing achieves a greater complexity. 

This 2013 blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah is the answer to an empty glass on an evening. Born from the high, dry terroir of the Calchaqui Valley, 1750 metres above sea level, it has an intense red colour that catches the eye. Spiced fruits and red peppers fill the mouth, while the Syrah portion of the blend brings strong tannins and a smooth roundness. Oak ageing achieves a greater complexity.

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.
