About this wine

The Nonni Cabernet Sauvignon received Bronze medal at 2015 Decanter World Wine Awards, Silver Medal at Japan’s Women Wine Awards 2016, and was marked by Tim Atkin MW as one of best wines of Argentina.

It is produced in Mendoza, Argentina, at the altitude of 1000-1050 metres, at the foot of the majestic Andes. The high altitude and southerly location combine to offer warm sunny days with cool mountain nights. The warm sunny days lend a rich concentration of black fruit flavors together with a soft, supple texture. The cool mountain nights contribute intense floral aromatics and racy acidity to the wines.

Grapes for this delicious Cabernet Sauvignon are hand-harvested, and ferment in stainless steel tanks. 30% of the wine ages in used French Oak barrels and picks a hint of oak, to create a rich and delicate texture.

Tasting Notes

Great balance with hints of fresh pepper and light eucalyptus. It has a friendly, drinkable style, presenting freshness and stylish sweet tannins.
