FAMILIA CECCHIN, Mendoza Organic
Located in Russell – Maipu, this 75-ha organic farm is owned and run by the Cecchin family since 1959.
Strict adherence to organic methods in the vineyard, limited yields and minimal interventions in the winery result in very articulate wines that truly reflect their terroir and capture the essence of the fruit.
Carignan is one of the most widely planted grape variety in France`s Languedoc-Roussillon-Provence and it was very interesting to find an Argentinean example. And we were not
disappointed. The nose exhibits concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry and ripe morello cherries, underpinned by some rustic earth and leathery notes. The palate shows bold and full-on fruit flavours, but it is nicely balanced, with fresh, natural acidity carrying the bright, pure fruit flavours and soft, ripe tannins. More-ish to the extreme.
