As the name alludes, the Trinita is a precise three-grape blend. Cultivated with arid-clean air, crystal-clear water,nutrient-rich soil, and following a meticulous, low volume process, Trinità’s Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are grown on 30- to 70-year-old vines located in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo (DOC) & UcoValley. Vines are managed to yield an average ofonly 3.8 pounds of fruit per vine and 3.1 tons per acre.
- Grapes were hand-picked and destemmed
- Grapes underwent 5 days of cold maceration
- Fermented in 5,000 to 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks
- Manual punch-down for optimal juice/skin interaction, which preserves the fruit-forward character of the blend
A complex, elegant wine with a deep ruby hue, Trinità tantalizes the senses with an aromatic bouquet of coffee and spice, unfolds across the palate with sweetness and a hint of chocolate, and lingers with a moderate tannin pull and a finish reminiscent of plums and oak.
