Originally from Italy, Don Valentin Bianchi moved to San Rafael, Mendoza in 1910 and started to build what would become a life long project, to open a winery and export his wines from Argentina to the world. The dream came true in 1928.With a lot of effort, Bodegas Bianchi came to life. Devoted to making the best wines, he imported strains and readapted them to the climate and regional soils of the region. Thus, little by little a family winery was born with a name that would become a tradition for excellence in wine.
The legacy continued with Enzo Bianchi, his son, and Valentin “Tincho” Bianchi, his grandson, renowned enologists that moved forward with the founder’s work with just as much dedication until their winery was placed among the most prestigious in the country and around the world. For 80+ years and 4 generations, the values of a family who has embedded their name in Argentine winemaking have remained intact.
Winemaker Notes... This wine has an intense, deep purplish colour and aromas that offer a freshness yet mineral notes and fruity intensity. Ripe plums, cherries and some spicy notes characteristic of Malbecs from San Rafael are also displayed on the nose. There are also floral notes such as violets, blended with sweet accents of vanilla and chocolate from its oak aging. Initially sweet on the palate, accompanied by soft, ripe tannins, and balanced acidity. This is a complex wine with the same fruity notes as on the nose. Balanced, yet elegant with a very good finish.
This wine is ideal with a large variety of foods including most meats and hard cheeses.
92 Points James Suckling... An attractive, balanced red with blueberry and light hazelnut character, as well as chocolate. Medium-bodied, fresh and vivid. Drink or hold.
