From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli’s Cafayate wines, grown at over 5,890 feet elevation. The distinctively colorful northwest Argentina mountains, formed by many geological layers, inspired our labels and our regionally distinct approach to winemaking. The splendor of this area, with its pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes that produce grapes bursting with flavor, make this not only one of the most beautiful but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine represents the best of the crops. An intense red color and aromas of black fruits, vanilla and smoke. These aromas are transformed to give the wine great structure and body on the palate. A soft fruit-forward flavor and a strong and balanced finish.
