Deep ruby color. The nose is intense with notes of white flowers, red cherries and figs. The palate is juicy and complex with hints of cloves and other spices. This well balanced wine is an elegant expression of the blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Petit CARO shares the same style as his big brother CARO, combining power and elegance.
Grapes are sourced from selected plots of old vines in Lujan de Cuyo just outside Mendoza, and also from Altamira, further South.
In Lujan, soils are quite varied depending on how close vineyards are to the mountains or Mendoza River, and tend to form alluvial layers of loam, rock, and gravel.
In Altamira, vineyards are planted at 1000m above sea level, on the ancient alluvial bed of the Tunuyan River.
