Delicious! This wine shows a dark violet color with and incredible nose of rich cherry, cassis and plum. The body shows hints of blackberry, mocha, vanilla, spice, and coffee with a sweetness from supple tannins. A sturdy wine that has superb balance and a very long finish. Can be enjoyed now or can be aged. Serve with red meats, grilled dishes, intense cheeses. Truly a crowd pleaser.
The Villafañe family has been in the wine business for almost 400 years. In 1611 Don Manuell Villafañe came to Argentina from Spain as a soldier to fight against the English pirates who attacked Spanish ships. Later he settled in South America as a farmer, and became a pioneer of winemaking in Argentina for being one of the first people to plant vines on that land. The objective at that time was to provide wine for the priests of the church and much later for the settlers, who came to the ‘New World’ to take advantage of the new opportunities.
The Don Manuel Villafañe winery was re-developed in the legacy of Don Manuel Villafane to deliver high quality wines to the world market. Don Manuel Villafañe winery is currently sending wines to 7 different countries, as well as to the domestic market in Argentina.
