OFFER OF THE MONTH – CARO
The art of blending contrasts.
This is going to be the main subject through all the month of October.
Our ARVI Team is excited and humbled to be the exclusive distributor of a huge project between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family!
The idea of forming a partnership between these two institutions was born in 1999. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce a single wine that would combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Catena family has produced wine for four generations. Consequently, it was able to draw on its vast knowledge of the high altitude terroirs of the Mendoza region as well as its passion for Malbec to find the best vineyards. DBR (Lafite) contributed its centuries-old skills in growing, vinifying and ageing great Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as its know-how in blending different grape varieties to produce one wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.
The Bodegas CARO winery, in the heart of Mendoza, «is an association between two cultures, two families and two noble grapes.» - Baron Eric de Rothschild
CARO, from CAtena and ROthschild, has a strong Argentine identity, characterized by the Malbec grape, which is given further elegance and complexity through blending with Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination produces a voluptuous, refined wine with a harmonious balance between the wine’s Argentinian identity and its Bordeaux style.
This is the perfect assemblage of two cultures: different characteristics merging together to give place to something new. When the old world merges with the new. When youth matures together with experience. When wildness becomes a bit more delicate. When Bordeaux meets Los Andes. All that is Bodegas CARO.
