REGION NOTES: This artisan wine was 100% organically grown at over 3000 Ft. above sea level in Mendoza, Argentina on the Caligiore Vineyards. Produced in an easy drinking style with “old vine” Malbec (80 year old vineyards.) & bright/fruity Cabernet Sauvignon these two noble varietals combine to create a medium bodied wine. Staccato is a musical term that means “short, vibrant notes”; this blend embodies that expression with intense (yet lithe) flavors.
