Pietro Marini Torrontés 2016

The Torrontes grape produces a wine strong with the scents of peaches and honey. In the mouth it bursts with the flavours of lemon peel, pineapple, and apple. A light, fresh, and aromatic wine with a well-balanced acidity, it's the ideal partner to seafood, pasta and Chinese food, but is eminently quaffable on its own.

One of the most exciting white wines coming out of Argentina last year, El Transito's Pietro Marini Torrontes 2016 is a beautiful example of a grape that is quickly becoming as synonymous for Argentinian white wine as Malbec is for red.

No matter the time of year, a glass of this is Summer in your hand.

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.
