About This Wine:
That care begins in the vineyard and continues at the winery. At the Aniello estate in the Rio Negro Valley of Argentina’s Patagonia region, the care translates to craftsmanship.
Geographically dynamic, Argentina’s cool-climate Patagonia region is a combination of jagged mountains, plateaus, snow, rivers, plains and sea. The eastern bank of the upper Río Negro area is carpeted by sandy, loamy soils. The constant breezes and low relative humidity help keep the Aniello vineyards pest-free.
The resulting wines are considered more elegant and refined than many of the more common, warm-weather wines from the Mendoza area. “Elegant” certainly is an appropriate adjective for the 2017 Aniello “006 Riverside Estate” Pinot Noir. Beautifully structured with round tannins, the wine has a subtle aroma that opens up to an abundance of alluring fruit flavors — a delicious work of vinous art.
