About this winery

At heart, Catena is a story about family. Family who poured their lives, passion and spirit into transforming scrub-laden desert into some of the most beautiful and unique vineyards in the world. Family that passed their knowledge from generation to generation, blending collective memory with state-of-the-art science from the new world of viticulture. Family who, through risk-taking, faith and a little luck, transformed their treasured Mendoza terroir into the fountainhead of the award-winning...

Product notes

La Marchingiana honours the natural and sulfate-free homemade wine legacy with this very limited production. "Naked wines in which only grapes and terroir speak."

Tasting notes

Notes of dark plums and spices with marked hints of chocolate, coffee beans and earth. Full body, structured and very grainy tannins, layers of dark fruit with delicate umami tones and a super tasty finish. This is a 'natural wine' made without added sulfites.

This is a no-sulfur wine that shows very pretty brightness and tanginess to the dark-fruit and dried-citrus character. It’s fruity and flavorful with blackberries and orange peel and a long, flavorful finish. Fun and energetic. Top quality. Made in amphora.

La Marchigiana is Catina's respectful look to the past, fermenting indigenous criolla in clay pots. Though the amphora here was brought over from Italy by Nicola Catena, Chile has a long ancestry with clay pot wine aging dating back to the 16th century. The label is also historical, dating back to when Nicola (before he changed his name to Argentinian Nicolás) sold barrels of wine to Buenos Aires' finest restaurants. This rosé of criolla, from Finca La Vendimia, spent 250+ days on skins in the pots before bottling, sulphite free. Light/moderate crimson-hued, this presents more a lighter red than the rosé label states. Pomegranate, raspberry, wild herbal thorns, and fragrant dried wildflowers are lifted and buoyant on the slight palate, kissed with ample fine mineral salts and wrung with whisper fine tannins across a saline finish. Very distinct and quite charming, ideally with a light chill.
