Winemaker Notes

An intense ruby-red color with violet shades. The nose presents concentrated aromas of violets, plum and red fruit with hints of vanilla, chocolate and "dulce de leche." The Gran Riserva has great structure and wonderful persistence on the palate. It presents juicy integrated tannins, with balanced acidity. A complex full-bodied wine; perfect to ccompany the heartiest of meat dishes or to enjoy on its own.

Wine Spectator
Dark, with licorice snap, espresso and black Mission fig notes that pump along, while hints of charred mesquite, roasted vanilla bean and black tea fill in behind them. The long finish has nice underlying minerality. Drink now through 2011. 1,500 cases made.

Ave, South America
Though the dynamic careers of Mario Pardini and Iacopo di Bugno transitioned many diverse disciplines including music, journalism, cinematography and economics there was always one inexorable constant: passion. Lured to Mendoza in 2004 the two young Tuscans were seduced by the sights, music, dance, food and intense fervor for life that pervades the Argentine culture. They were enraptured by the majestic mountains and the lush oasis of vineyards at the base of the Andes but what captivated them the most was what they affectionately referred to as Mendoza’s "eldest son": the Wine! Desiring to establish an avant-garde winery that celebrated their ancestry while optimizing the potential of Argentine viticulture they sought and acquired 40 hectares of prime vineyard in the prestigious region of Pedriel, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, counting among their neighbors some of the finest and most honored Argentine wineries. To complete the marriage of enological traditions they hired Tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini to assist them in transforming their philosophies and passion into wines befitting the name "AVE," which translates as hail! and was the revered greeting the Romans offered to Caesar. As Italian wine makers in the new world Mario and Iacopo produce wines with depth and power yet still exhibit the structure and harmony reminiscent of the wines of their heritage. Of their "eldest son" they say "old age does not exist, only maturity."

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
