Trisagio 2016

Benvenuto de la Serna is located in the premier Argentinean wine region of Valle de Uco, Mendoza. The single-estate vineyard is located in Vista Flores, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains at 1,100 meters elevation. The alluvial soil in this area is known for being extremely stony with predominantly high sand content, which allows the roots of the vines to reach incredible depths into the ground while offering excellent drainage. Because of its semi-desert climate, the temperature spread between day and night can be up to 68oF. Due to its high elevation and exposure to the hot desert sun, the fruit develops ripe, rich flavors and deep colors, yet maintains a balanced acidity – the prized qualities of Valle de Uco grapes.

Trisagio 2016 vineyards feature a VSP (Vertical Shoot Position) trellis system with drip irrigation. Grapes are harvested by hand in mid-to-late April in cases of 15-18 kg using double grain and bunch selection.

TASTING NOTES
The Malbec appears fruity in the nose, and spicy and vibrant in the palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon provides elegance and structure, as a perfect complement to the black fruit of the Merlot.
