About The Wine
Big red lovers, you're on to a winner here.
This is an opulent, ultra-smooth Malbec from a vineyard almost 1000m above sea level, in the iconic region of Mendoza.
An Italian family from Piedmonte is behind the wine. Having immigrated in the 19th century, the Cassones established a modern premium winery in the south-west of the region.
Combining this great old vine fruit with modern, polished winemaking techniques allows current owner Eduardo Cassone to produce powerful yet approachable wines that do great justice to the terroir they come from.
About Familia Cassone
The Cassone family has had winemaking in their blood for generations.
It all started with their ancestor, Celestino Cassone, who migrated from well-known winemaking region Piedmont, all the way to Argentina. His son, Roberto, then went on to buy a vineyard in Mendoza in the 1950's. He in turn passed on his knowledge of the land and passion to his son, Eduardo.
Eduardo Cassone built his own winery in 1998-1999 to continue with their family legacy, and he still leads the charge today. They love to make wines that highlight the traditional Mendoza style, while working in unison with their environment and treating the land with respect.
