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 Spain, Castilla Y Leon region, Toro sub-region. Numanthia is the estate's signature wine and uses the best grapes from the appellation. The winemakers aim to reveal and magnify the natural quality of fruit harvested at perfect maturity. The result is glorious fruit flavours and very complex aromas. Solidly built, with tannins that are both clear-cut and well integrated, Numanthia shows both power and precision. TEMPRANILLO Wine SPANISH STILL WINE

This wine is from Spain, Castilla Y Leon region, Toro sub-region. The award winning Termanthia is the ultimate expression of the best of vineyard plots in Toro with vines that over 120 years old and at an altitude of 800 meters. The hyper-concentrated fruit produces considerable aromatic complexity and shows tremendous power on the palate with plenty of fleshy roundness and as much elegance and precision as it does intensity. This is a wine that will keep very well, gaining even more complexity in bottle. . The 2007 Numanthia is marginally more approachable but it, too, is a dense, layered, voluminous, structured wine. Given the requisite cellaring, it will eventually become both elegant and powerful.Bodegas Numanthia-Termes was sold by the Eguren family to Moet-Hennessey prior to the 2006 vintage. What this might ultimately mean for quality or style of the wine remains to be seen but there is no questioning the performance of the 2006 and 2007 vintages..
