TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING):
Deep ruby colour. The nose is expressive with notes of raspberries, coffee and figs. Complex and juicy on the palate with aromas of plums, fruit and spices, this well-balanced wine is an elegant expression of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
Petit CARO shares the same style as his big brother CARO, combing power and elegance. Grapes are sourced from selected plots of old vines in Lujan de Cuyo just outside Mendoza, and also from Altamira, further South. In Lujan, soils are quite varied depending on how close vineyards are to the mountains or Mendoza River, and tend to form alluvial layers of loam, rock, and gravel. In Altamira, vineyards are planted at 1000m above sea level, on the ancient alluvial bed of the Tunuyan River.
