When in the mid 1880s Pascual Toso set out towards Argentina from its home town, Canale D’Alba, in Piamonte, Italy, he could not have imagined that he would become the founder of a winery, which is today one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina.
When he arrived in Argentina, he settled in Mendoza. As he had been closely involved in the development of his family wine business in Piedmont, he promptly saw the promising future for winemaking in the region and decided to use his expertise. Thus, in 1890, Pascual Toso established his first winery in San Jose, Guaymallen.
At the beginning of the 20th century, he decided to expand his business and acquired vineyards in Maipu. At his estate 'Las Barrancas', he built another winery, 'Las Barrancas' (small Canyon) which is dedicated to producing and growing the finest grapes.
On the nose this wine is clean and fruitful. Its aromas reminds of plums & quince with a little touch of elegant oak. The mouth has a mild bouquet, blackberry and licorice fruit that keeps a firm grip through the finish. Thick and Burly. Rich and long finish with smoky accents of vanilla and lingering oak. Enjoy with pasta, red meats and white meats in light cream sauces.
