Intense deep red color with violet hues. Complex aromas of plums and ripe cherries and violets. It is enhanced by the presence of dry fruits and mint hints. A wine of great concentration and complexity showing sweet and voluminous tannins.

About Finca Sophenia:

Roberto Luka, inspirer and the main shareholder of Finca Sophenia, holds a recognized background in the wine world. He was Managing Director of one of the main wine exporter companies of his country and President of Wines of Argentina. In 1997, he founded Finca Sophenia together with Gustavo Benvenuto. He named it this way after the names of their daughters: Sophia and Eugenia. Later, his friends and businessmen from other sectors joined this venture: Néstor Rebagliati and Daniel Sammartino.

The in-house winemaker, Rogelio Rabino, and consultants Matías Michelini and Michel Rolland form the winemaking team.
