Rio Negro, Patagonia
French and American barrels for 12 months
DENARIO wines are made with estate grown fruit from Humberto Canale vines located in Patagonia Argentina, one of the southernmost producing regions in the world. It is a family winery, being the first one to produce wines in the region in 1909. All Canale fruit is estate grown. Located at 39.2º, Southern latitude, this special climate, where nights are cold and days intensely sunny, are ideal factors for the development of fine grape varieties. Well drained limestone, without any physical barriers of stones or boulders on the surface, improves the drainage capacity of the vineyards' irrigation, using canal aquifers. The irrigation water is high-purity meltdown, sourced from the Andes mountains by gravity.
Complex and elegant. Intense garnet color, with purple nuances. On the nose, the ripe red berry notes complement subtle hints of vanilla and coconut, thanks to the careful oak ageing. The taste shows a good full body and balance, with berry jam notes. It is a well structured wine, with a complex and long finish
