Loscano The Winemaker Torrontés
Grown at more than a mile above sea level, the elevation and reduced atmosphere produce extreme thermal amplitude swings and results in a wine exploding with flavor. Consistently dry conditions—lacking humidity or much rain—means there are virtually no diseases or pests to contend with. The vines thrive in the arid environment, nourished by pure water irrigated from the melting snow of the Andes. Loscano Torrontés is put back on the lees during aging, increasing the aromas and integrating the flavors for complexity and balance. The ancient genetic cross of Muscat of Alexandria and Criolla Chica, this is Argentina’s only native varietal and is a food-styled wine with youthful acidity.
Sustainably and naturally produced and minimally processed in the high elevations of the Andes Mountains, Loscano Wines represent integration with nature and resilience in a homeland known for great wine.
