Winemaker's Notes:

Purple tinted with assertive red tones, Eolo unfolds layers of engaging aromas including ripe cherry, smoky coconut and hints of blueberry jam. Full-bodied in structure, this wine has lively fruit flavors and sweet round tannins that allow for a long, smooth and lingering finish.

Enjoy with grilled meats including beef and game. Also excellent with spicy dishes, and aged cheeses.

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.
