The red Recoleta is a young Argentinian dry red wine, very fruity, refreshing and fun to drink – brings up memories of sun, holidays on the beach and sounds of music. The red Recoleta feels rather light on the palate thanks to the mouth-watering acidity, balanced with just right level of sugars. It is packed with aromas of red fruits: red cherry, strawberry and raspberry, and a bit of spice. Definitely not a complex wine, the Recoleta is designed for casual drinking with friends or to brighten the mood after a hard day at work.
