Winemaker's Notes:

Scramble the letters in AMARONE and you get ENAMORE! An exciting, innovative wine produced from a blend of Malbec, Syrah, Bonarda and Cabernet Franc uniquely dried and vinified in the Amarone style. A truly unique joint production between Allegrini (renowned Italian producer of Amarone) and Bodega Renacer. The grapes that produce Enamore are sourced from 50+ years old vines located in three distinct high altitude vineyards from the Mendoza region in Argentina. The grapes are dried on the vines (appassimento), until they loose 1/3 of their weight. After a prolonged fermentation (both alcoholic and malolactic) the wine is aged in new French barriques for 12 months

Dark ruby red in color, Enamore offers supple aromas of ripe berries, raisin, and plums. Sensual notes of exotic spices, charcoal and chocolate are seamlessly layered with the fruit. Full bodied, rich and complex, with a long finish beautifully framed by fine-grained tannins. This is a very special wine that will surprise many wine lovers. Pair with semi soft cheese, dark chocolate, and pasta with mushroom sauce.

My Notes:

About Bodega Renacer:

Bodegas Renacer is located in northern Mendoza in Perdriel—a sub-region of Luján de Cuyo with an extremely high reputation for producing excellent Malbecs due to its particular microclimate and lime-rich soils. The winery structure itself is quite impressive, featuring a medieval tower built of rocks with state of the art technical equipment.

Key wines Punto Final Clásico and Reserva are modern, fruity, elegant wines with a distinctive personality. These labels show a unique style focused in the typical aromas of Argentina’s emblematic variety. The philosophy is to attain the highest quality within the highest international standards—a goal achieved through their scrupulous care of the vineyards and devotion to wine and the winemaking process.
