Trisagio 2011

Benvenuto de la Serna wines are made with estate-grown fruit from a single vineyard located in one of the most prestigious wine regions of Argentina, Valle de Uco. A small family winery owned by Silvio Benvenuto, son of Italian wine-making immigrants, whose mission statement is to “make 100% estate and 100% handcrafted wines."

Benvenuto de la Serna is located at 1100 meters above sea level. Tucked away in the western-most end of the Mendoza province, the region has semi-desert climate where the bright sun shines throughout the year with very little rain fall. Located in the most pristine environment the water supply, essential for the vines in the desert, comes from fresh snowmelt off the Andes mountains directly next to the vineyard (literally).

The alluvial soil in this area is known for being extremely stony with predominately sand content, which allows the roots of the vines to reach incredibly deep into the ground while offering excellent drainage. With very large temperature swings between the hot days and cool nights, the vines yield to elegant wines that are noted by the smooth textured red fruit, bright acidity as well rounded tannins.

TASTING NOTES
Intense violet color. Dark berries aromas, spices and sweet tannins with a long and elegant finish.
