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
Eolo's vineyards, planted in 1912, are perched high above the
surrounding vineyards and nestled in a privileged location. Higher
altitude allows the 96 year old vines to benefit from cooler nights and days with larger temperature variation, allowing for smaller bunch development and grape size, with more concentrated fruit character and marvelous color. Nurtured through life by melt water from the Mendoza river and harvested over two weeks, vine by vine, this wine represents the highest quality from Trivento. The highest quality from Argentina.
"Toasty, displaying mesquite, baking spice and licorice notes to the racy plum sauce and creamy wild berry compote flavors, remaining fresh as the finish reverberates with fruit character. Drink now through 2017. "
"Eolo is Trivento’s prized wine, and this vintage hammers away from the start with blackberry, toast and pepper aromas. The palate is huge and extracted, with dark, fat blackberry flavors that are tempered by graphite and minty oak. It’s as black as they come, with mint and licorice flavors on the finish. An inky, intense wine, with less than 500 cases made."
"Saturated bright ruby. Pure, dark aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, violet, menthol and licorice. Large-scaled and quite sweet in the mouth; a no-holds-barred fruit bomb of dark berries and bitter chocolate. Saturates the entire mouth with flavor and finishes with building tannins, a more restrained sweetness and a slight alcoholic warmth. Outstanding in its idiom."
