Winemaker's Notes:

TriVento Amado Sur Red is a deep red color with violet hues and flavors and aromas of red fruits like strawberries, cherries and plum jam combined with soft spicy and sweet aromas. Plus, vanilla and black chocolate aromas from the oak. It has a wweet entrance and gentle tannins with persistence in the mouth. Long and pleasant ending.

Blend: 73% Malbec, 15% Bonarda, 12% Syrah

About Trivento:

Our winery is named after the three winds that sweep through our vineyards, giving our grapes their unique character.

The icy Polar wind invades the vineyard in winter. Cold forces the sap deep within the vines. Pruning begins to encourage renewed growth.

The Zonda wind rushes down off the Andes from the West. Racing across open furrows, its warmth envelops each plant rousing the dormant sap to supply new, spring growth.

The third wind, the Sudestada, draws in from the East, fresh yet humid, in summer. It gives our grapes respite from the searing sun and eases berry ripening.
