Winemaker's Notes:

Smooth, fruity, and a touch earthy on the nose, with pure raspberry, plum, and cassis in proper doses. Quite comfortable across the palate, where juicy acids wrestle with full tannins. Finishes big, with chocolate.

About Vina Amalia:

Originally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine since 1922. In their beginning they owned the "Purísima" winery from where they sold wines in 220 liter wooden barrels. In 1935, Adolfo Basso, together with his brother Tulio, purchased the "Santa Ana" winery, eventually turning it into one of Argentina's largest bodegas. Seeking to simplify their lives and once again become involved in small production winemaking, the family sold "Santa Ana" in 1996. Using the profits from this sale the Basso's purchased and remodeled a small winery (Vina Amalia) in Carrodilla, Mendoza the following year. Inside this space the "Carlos Basso" project was born. The winery is 100% estate, with two vineyards in Mendoza's Uco Valley. Carlos and his son Adolfo run the day to day operations of the winery.
