Alma Gemela Carignan, Lavalle Valley

Bottle Notes 

Mariana Onofri, Sommelier & Winemaker, and Adán Giangiulio, viticulturist, are from Lavalle, one of the oldest wines growing regions north of Mendoza. In 2014 they started Onofri Wines, a boutique winery project that focuses on sustainable farming and minimal intervention winemaking. Their goal is to produce wines which are the result of micro-vinifications made in an artisanal way, rescuing old vines, historical regions and grape varieties, as well as innovating with grapes that display a great adaptation in Mendoza.

This wonderful Carignan shows a really attractive nose; slight balsamic and minty notes with plum and blackberry. Lovely freshness - medium bodied and silky, with plush tannins and a snappy tension. Long and pure finish, such a drinkable style. Quality stuff, and no wonder it's the choice of many a top sommelier.
