Argento Decanter Awards 2011

Decanter Magazine has awarded their prestigious International Trophy for Best Red Single Varietal under £10 to Argento Bonarda 2010. The announcement was made at Decanter’s annual World Wine Awards Dinner at the Royal Opera House in London, UK, where Managing Director Amelia Nolan and Winemaker Silvia Corti proudly accepted the award.

From Decanter:

Argento, Bonarda, Mendoza, Argentina
2010 (13%)
Exciting, warm, spicy and inviting with ripe, succulent fruit plus a good backbone of acidity and tannin. Broad, rich, ripe and full bodied, with liquorice and dark chocolate to finish.
UK: £6.99; Bib. US: $12.99; USLN

And so the Argentinian juggernaut rolls on, thanks to a super wine made from the country’s ‘other’ signature red grape and produced by one of its major names. Since its formation in 1998, Argento has been Argentina’s most visible ambassador. Many wine drinkers overseas will have had their first Argentinian encounter courtesy of Argento, which is owned by Bodegas Esmeralda of Argentina and UK wine importer Bibendum. In the past decade, Argento has evolved to become a reliable standard-bearer for Argentina, producing balanced, fruit-forward wines that are keenly priced. The company understands something crucial about Argentinian culture: that wine is part of the family’s table.
