Catena/Rothschild ‘'Aruma'' Malbec 2015 - Mendoza, Argentina
Varietals: 100% Malbec
Red color with hints of violet. The nose expresses notes of ripe red fruit and plums. On the palate, well-balanced with excellent acidity. The elegant, silky, well-rounded tannins are typical of the Malbec grape. Long, delicate finish.
CARO was born of the alliance between two wine cultures (French and Argentine), two noble grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec), and two renowned wine families, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolás Catena. Vignerons since the 19th century, these two powerful organizations have combined their deep knowledge of Mendoza's high-altitude terroir and the art of winemaking to create a unique wine: CARO. Two noble grapes, two families, one dear and elegant wine.
The idea of forming a partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family was born in 1999. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce a single wine that would combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
