The Cabernet Franc grapes are sourced from the Campo de los Andes vineyard in Tunuyan in Argentina's Uco Valley at an altitude of 1100 metres above sea level.

This full-bodied red wine has leafy fruit and peppery notes on the perfumed nose with sweet fruit and good freshness. Ripe fruits and fresh racy acidity on the palate is finished with a little tannic grip and sweet black and red fruit.

The wine has been partially aged for 12 months is used French oak barrels.

The Tunuyan subregion is relatively new, with the first vines planted in the 1990s. Vineyards sit in the foothills of the Andes. Wide diurnal temperature variation and deep alluvial soils combine to produce rich reds with balanced acidity and structured tannins.

Pair this with grilled game, steak or miso-grilled aubergines.

Familia Falasco

Bodegas Los Haroldos is one of Argentina’s leading family-owned wineries. The story began in 1939 when Haroldo Santos Falasco, known as ‘Don Lolo’, wheeled his bicycle through the streets of Chacabuco selling his wines from the basket on the front.

80 years later, Franco Falasco and his siblings are responsible for their family’s legacy: creating wines of excellence and quality for the world to enjoy.
