Inspired by the beautiful (and striking) Andean flower of the same name, Notro wines are vibrant, fruit-forward offerings that retain the indelible character of their high-altitude origins in Argentina’s premier winegrowing areas.
Tasting Notes: Offers a mix of ripe, red and dark fruit aromas, with hints of red currants and violets. This open-knit medium weight wine is full of instantly pleasing red fruits, the sturdy structure of Cabernet allied with the lushness of Malbec, with a long, clean finish.
Serve With: A versatile wine that will complement most meals, including pizza, pasta, red and white meat dishes, and more.
