Argentina

Mendoza

Description

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: Bursts with aromas of plums, blackberries and violets. Medium-bodied on the palate, with vibrant, dark fruit flavors.

Serve With: Excellent with red meats, pasta with red sauce, grilled vegetables, or classic Argentine dishes including empanadas and asado.
