About This Vineyard

Bodega Chacra is situated in northern Patagonia, the same distance from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The region has a dry and arid climate and is sheltered by the natural barrier created by the surrounding desert. The air is crystal clear, without pollution, and the sun shines with dazzling intensity. The climate in the region is very consistent, each season marked precisely, which means that vintages can be relied on for their consistent quality. Piero Incisa della Rocchetta first purchased the land for Bodega Chacra in 2004, and subsequently added to it over the years. He comes from a family of winemakers well known in the region. The vineyard, which was abandoned when he first purchased it, has thick, pure, gnarled Pinot Noir vines, planted over seventy years ago. The vines produce tiny bunches of small, concentrated berries which are harvested by hand. When fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred into barriques by gravity, without pressing or filtering. Bottling is done without fining or filtration. The idea is for the oak, the fruit and the nuances of the soil to blend perfectly so that the terroir is expressed to its fullest. Steve Tanzer made note of this distinctiveness during a tasting of the Wines of Argentina where he noted that Chacra Treinta y Dos contains deep, musky aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet, spices and underbrush. And that it is firm and minerally in the mouth, with very primary, energetic flavors of dark fruits and spices. Treinta y Dos finishes with solid but suave tannins and excellent tangy length and lift.

This wine is from Argentina, Southern Region region, Rio Negro sub-region. Barda is made from fruit from a 20-year-old vineyard, and also receives fruit from the“Treinta y Dos' and “Cincuenta y Cinco' vineyards. The fruit was harvested by hand and no automated mechanization was used at any stage of the production process. The grapes were hand destemmed and sorted before moving to small cement tanks for maceration with occasional punch-downs to maximizeextraction of color, fruit and tannins. The grapes were fermented with natural yeasts, and the wine was matured in oak barrels before bottling.. Smooth with dusty berry, plum, caramel and spice aromas and flavors, this Pinot Noir culminates in a composed and satisfying finish.. Pairs well with roastbeef, salmon, swordfish and pastas with meat or seafood sauces. PINOT NOIR Wine Argentinian Still Wine
