The Character

Tasting Notes Deep red, intense color with ruby reflections. Complex aroma, where the fruity part is highlighted, especially the black fresh fruit: black and purple guidas. Other notes include graphite minerality, vanilla, & moka (from the barrel aging). The mouthfeel is ripe & sweet with round tannins, broad and unctuous in the middle of the palate, and a very persistent end.

Pairings Pork chops, well-roasted meats and well-cured cheeses.

The Story

Fruit is sourced from estate vineyards called 'General Roca'. Carefully harvested by hand, immediately sent to the cellar from the vineyard, in small containers. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 48-72 HS, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature (25 ° to 27 º C) in vessels of 9,000 Lts capacity for 20 days with periodic reassembly and delestage. Malolactic fermentation. 15% to 20% of the volume aged in French and American oak barrel for 7 months. Period of storage in bottle for 6 months before marketing.

Brand Story

Humberto Canale’s name is intimately tied to the growth of Argentina & the industrial development of Patagonia after the construction of the railway connecting this remote land with the rest of the country. In the middle of an oasis in the High Valley of Rio Negro, the winery began in 1909. Humberto Canale settled & helped develop the irrigation system in the area, between 1898 &1904. His vision led him to buy 200 hectares in this wild location and import the needed equipment to develop viticulture in the region. In 1912 vineyards were planted and by the mid-20th century its image was consolidated. By injecting professional know-how, he promoted investigation and creativity, allowing the world to see the special terroir that gave birth to different, very characteristic wines.
