Winemaker's Notes:

From the historic foothills of the Andes Mountains in Medonza, emerges Cuarto Dominino's Tolentino Winemaker's Selection Malbec. The wine is a dark violet color and displays dense, black fruit aromas, with a hint of mocha. On the palate, there are chocolate and black fruit flavors with soft, silky tannins. It has a natural balance, nice concentration and a distinctively smooth, lengthy finish.

The Tolentino Malbec pairs beautifully with red meats such as roast beef, steak and prime rib. It also goes well with roast turkey and chicken. It also compliments Mexican, Cajun, Indian and Italian foods, especially those with rich tomato sauces.

About Bodega Cuarto Domino:

The great grandfather of Javier Catena, President of Bodega Cuarto Dominio, was born in the little town of Tolentino in Italy at the end of the 1800’s. He was a vineyard worker there until he sailed from Italy to Argentina in 1898. When he arrived to Mendoza, he was taken aback by the splendor of the Andes, by its landscapes and by the people that received him so warmly. He was convinced he wanted to follow his dream here and planted his first Malbec vineyard in 1902. Up until that point, Malbec was a blending grape in Bordeaux, but Nicola supposed it would find its perfect place in Mendoza.

Domingo, Javier's grandfather, decided to continue fulfilling his father's dream and took the family winery to the next level, becoming one of the largest vineyard owners and building one of the biggest wineries in Argentina.
