Pietro Marini Tannat 2017

On the nose there are scents of ripe autumnal berries and just a hint of warm winter spices. On the tongue it's remarkably smooth, with a fresh flavour of plum jam and red fruits, and a hint of liquorice in its finish. As the nights draw in and get colder, this is the perfect accompaniment to beef dishes, or for simply savouring as you sit by a roaring fire. 
 

Proving there's so much more to great Argentinian winemaking than Malbec, El Transito's Pietro Marini Tannat 2017 makes great use of a grape that's currently enjoying a big surge in popularity in the wine world. 

On the nose there are scents of ripe autumnal berries and just a hint of warm winter spices. On the tongue it's remarkably smooth, with a fresh, strong flavour of plum jam and red fruits, light vanilla notes, beautifully soft tannins, and a hint of liquorice in its finish. As the nights draw in and get colder, this is the perfect accompaniment to beef dishes, or for simply savouring as you sit by a roaring fire.

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.
