At 34 degrees of southern latitude, the region of Progreso is adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean and its maritime influences. Here the vines grow on clay, ash and calcareous soils, north of the capital Montevideo and close to the Rio de la Plata (River Plate). The region benefits from a sunny and cool climate, the vines enjoy cooling winds to produce low yields of top quality grapes.
The Pisano vineyards belong to a group of small family vignerons with an artisan tradition of making wines that reflect the character of the land and the people. Francesco Pisano arrived in Uruguay in 1870 from Italy (the great grandfather of the current owners). The original vineyards were planted in 1914 by his son Cesare. Today, this winemaking tradition continues and they produce some of the country`s most prestigious and best wines with distinctive character oriented to the high quality, niche market. These hand crafted wines are produced in limited quantities and total production at the Pisano family cellars is only 18,000 cases per year across the range of these award winning varietals.
This is Pisano`s premium blended red. Deep, complex and elegant, with well defined spices, coffee, tobacco and toasty oak on the nose. Dense and powerful on the palate, with layers of plum and ripe black cherry flavours. Aristocractic, delicious and structured.
The Pisano family`s prestige premium red blend which is Tannat, Cabernet and Merlot. Powerful, enormously deep coloured and complex, dense layers of very ripe fruit balanced with light acidity and spice. Toasted smokey oak on the full rich finish.
Superb with game dishes, peppered steak, sheep and goats cheeses.
