Siete Fincas Secreto

Description

Intense aromas with presence of red cherry, red plum and a touch of cassis, red pepper and subtle spicy oak notes. The palate is full bodied, with lots of soft black fruits, some herbal note, hints of vanilla and chocolate that emanate from its oak ageing. 3000 bottles made and a true testament to the quality that Siete Fincas offers.

Extra Notes

Siete Fincas is a family winery created by Edgardo Stallocca in 2000 to continue the viticultural tradition his grandfather, Juan Stallocca, began in Mendoza in 1904. The winery honours Edgardo’s childhood, spent in the family bodega and vineyards. From the “siete fincas” or “seven lands” where Juan Stallocca once stood, Edgardo is transforming his family heritage into handcrafted, premium wines.

Producing limited quantities of quality wines, grapes yield from select vineyards located in Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and Uco Valley – high-elevation regions characterised by ideal weather conditions and moderate drainage for the development of expressive wines.

Wine Review

2017 Siete Fincas Secreto Cabernet Franc

Lots of blackberry and pepper aromas, with a soft mouthfeel full of herbaceous notes, black fruit and a little spice. Delicious example of this wonderful varietal on its own.

Region

Tupungato, Mendoza

Tupungato is the northernmost sub region of the Uco Valley. It is one of the more important sub regions within the whole of Mendoza, the powerhouse wine region of Argentina. The small town of Tupungato is roughly 65 kilometers (40 miles) south of the city of Mendoza, along the western foothills of the Andes mountains. The region lies at the foot of the Mt Tupungato volcano, which, at 6,570 meters (21,555ft) high, is one of the highest peaks in Argentina.

The average vineyard sits at an altitude of 1,300 meters (4,200ft) above sea level.
