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.
The grapes are left on the vines until they have lost humidity and begun to shrink. Part of the grapes are then harvested, the remaining are left on the vine to achieve botrytis flavours and aromas. The resultant combination produces a deep purple wine with concentrated flavours and aromas of forest fruits, plums and spiced wood. Similar in style to a traditional port, vanilla spiced, with a long and generous finish. A surprisingly complex sweet red wine.
A port styled sweet red fortified wine. It has concentrated flavours and aromas of forest fruits, plums and spiced wood. Hints of vanilla oak in adundance with a long and generous finish. A surprisingly complex dessert wine.
Perfect with chocolate, ice creams and dried fruit compote. Compliments cheese such as Roquefort.
