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.

94 Points | Tim Atkin
A fascinating blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon produced from grapes grown at over 5,890 feet, from vineyards high in the Andes surrounding Salta. Rich purple in color. Aromas of black fruits jelly, blackberries, black currant, flowers, lavender, wood, caramel, vanilla, clove, cinnamon, milk, toasted coconut. The Palate shows liquorice and black currant with a touch of minerality and grilled meat. Acidity is medium, tannins are medium plus, very polished and integrated, fruits are all over, and a never ending finish.
