You have never tasted Malbec like this before!


Why do we love it?

The Catena Zapata winery, with the La Marchigiana series, celebrates the traditional way of winemaking and is dedicated to the methods inherited from Nicola Catena's ancestors. If you've tried about 10 or more Argentinian Malbecs and now you're thinking, ok this is one more, you have to believe us that we're talking about something completely different here. The ideal marriage of New and Old World, in a unique Malbec that you have to try!

The history of the winery goes back to 1898 when Nicola Catena from Le Marche, Italy, settled in Mendoza, Argentina with the intention of making it big and he succeeded. In 1902 he founded Catena Zapata and stood out for the way he highlighted the exceptional terroirs of the very high altitudes, at the foot of the Andes. There he discovered that the average temperature and the environmental conditions created the perfect ripening of the grapes, while he cultivated each vineyard separately, to fully highlight the authentic expression of the fruit.

In the La Marchigiana project, he combines the traditional manual harvesting and natural vinification of the Marche, with fermentation in clay containers with indigenous yeasts, which were practiced in Cuyo, Argentina. The Malbec comes from the Gualtallary vineyards, where it is cultivated with organic and biodynamic practices and after fermentation, which lasts 14 days, it remains for 4 months in amphorae and is bottled without sulfates. The result is pure juicy fruit, structure, complexity, and delightful freshness!

Try it while you still have time!









Tastes Like

In the glass, it is deep purple. Intensely fruity and complex character. Black cherry, plum, sour cherry, blueberry, raspberry, nutmeg, anise, and violet, with hints of dark chocolate, coffee beans, wet earth, and vanilla.

Rich in the mouth with fine-grained well-worked tannins and balanced acidity. Cherry, blueberry and plum jam dominate, while lavender, vanilla, earthy notes, cocoa and tobacco unfold. The aftertaste is fruity and long.

Rooster Pastitsada (spicy tomato sauce)

1 kg of rooster, cut into portions

500 gr. spaghetti (ideally no. 2)

1 clove of garlic

2 large onions

2 tbsps. white wine vinegar

200 ml. red wine

1 tbsp. of sugar

1 tbsp. of butter

2 tbsps. of tomato paste

150 gr. tomato sauce

2 bay leaves

1 cinnamon stick

3-4 all spices

Olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper


Wash the rooster and dry it with absorbent paper. Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan, brown the pieces of the rooster well on all sides and transfer them to a wide, deep pot.

In the pan (with the olive oil) we used before, add the butter, garlic and onions after chopping them. We saute them until they soften, and then add the vinegar. Then return the meat into the pot.

Put the pot in high heat and pour in the wine. Leave for a few minutes to evaporate and then add the spices, sugar, pepper and salt. Finally add the tomato paste dissolved in a cup of hot water.

Lower the heat and let simmer until the meat softens and the sauce is thick.

Check regularly to have enough sauce and add extra hot water if necessary.

When the rooster is tender, boil the spaghetti in another pot.

Remove the meat from the saucepan and place it on a serving platter. Put the spaghetti in the sauce and mix well to absorb the juices.

Serve the spaghetti with the meat and if you want, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and grated cheese.
