Tasting Notes

The Claroscuro Malbec is gorgeously soft and oozes decadent ripe plums and blackberries topped off with dark chocolate and oregano. It’s spent 9 months in oak (85% French, 15% American) and comes from a vineyard in Vistaflores in the Tunuyán area of the Uco Valley which sits at 1054 meters or 3428 feet above sea level. This altitude gives fantastically mature fruit flavors and smooth tannins thanks to the extra UV radiation, while retaining excellent acidity to provide balance to all that jammy fruit.

The Producer

Bodega de Arte

The family wine project was born in 2012 when Gustavo and Paula Cucchiara were touring the Uco Valley and in Vistaflores Tunuyán and fell in love with Finca San Francisco because of its slopes and view to the Andes. As an “Art Winery” they believe that winemaking is as much an art as painting. When testing each of the wines they are looking for similarities to the paintings of an Argentine artist, whether in effect, expression, tranquility, vitality, etc. choosing the artwork that will be suitable for each wine and suitable for the label.

Finca San Francisco has 26 hectares of vines in the Uco Valley. The terroir has sandy loam soil in the higher levels of the vineyard and stones in the lower parts so the vineyard is divided into parcels generating greater diversity which allowing a greater variety of wines from the same vineyard.
