Tacito Pinot Noir is a beautiful, complex Pinot Noir from familiy producer Bodegas Del Rio Alorza. Wine-maker Augustin Lombroni has produced a Burgundian-style Pinot Noir with subtle savoury plum and berry fruit wih fresh acidity and amazing length. A real joy.
Patagonia is considered one of Argentina's most beautiful places and for wine makers it offers fertile soil, numerous hours of sun and abundant water. In this privileged setting Verum (Bodega Del Río Elorza) was born, a realization of a combined dream between two families - the 'Del Rio' family and the 'Elorza' family.
In 2001 the Del Rio Elorza family purchased a vineyard originally planted at the beginning of the 20th century. Planting to high density (5,500 vines/hectare) their 20 hectare site now includes Malbec, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and their wines go from strength to strength. Tim Atkin MW considers Del Rio Elorza to be one of the top 25 Argentine wineries 'to watch.'
Led by internationally renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini and local winemaker Agustin Lombroni, their experience and understanding of this unique Patagonian terroir impart great personality in the wines.
