Notes about product
Tilia seeks to create action around sustainable farming in Argentina and around the world. It is also the first Argentine wine to carry the Bodegas de Argentina Certified Sustainable seal on its label. The Bonarda grapes in Argentina are not the same as the Bonarda grapes in Italy. They are in fact the same grapes known as Douce Noire in France and Charbono in California. Bonarda has become, along with Malbec, one of the signature reds of Argentina.

Fermented at a maximum temperature of 25-28°C, for 10 days with a 15 day maceration in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left to age for 6 months in French Oak.
The nose is packed with dark fruit marmalade and spice flavors. A subtly sweet entry followed by soft, round tannins. Bright basil leaves and blueberry flavours linger on the palate.
