  • Terroir
    Finca La Mascota, Cruz de Piedra, Maipu, Mendoza, the most important wine region of Argentina. The Cabernet-sauvignon vines are planted in altitude, in a stony and semi-clay soil. The vines receive fresh breezes descending from the mountains and blowing along the river, all of which contributes to the generation of wide temperature ranges.
    The soil is predominantly alluvial, with a clay-loam surface. La Mascota finds itself set in perfect surroundings, and one the most renowned and prestigious wine-growing regions in Mendoza. The average age of the vineyards is 30 years, ranging from the 5-year-old new blocks to the oldest ones planted in the 70’s.
  • Features
    Dark ruby color; ripe cherry and plum fruit aromas with earth and mineral notes; full-bodied with black cherry and currant notes followed by a dry cedar finish.
  • Food Pairings
    Ideal to combine with pasta, red meats or mature soft cheeses.
