Why do we love it?

Dona Silvina Petit Verdot Single Vineyard is the first biodynamic Petit Verdot in Argentina and one of our (and yours) favorite bold red wines. The dense ripe fruit of the New World, combined with the sweet and spicy character of the barrel and the robust structure of the variety compose a truly irresistible ensemble.

Constantine Krontiras and his wife Silvina Macipa - Krontiras, followed their passion for the Argentinian wine and in 2004 created the Bodegas Krontiras in Lujan de Cujo, the area producing the best Malbec in the world. Their winery is among the most beautiful wineries in Argentina. Ultramodern and biodynamic certified, it is a gem in the foothills of the Andes, in the beautiful Mendoza are, where the best wines of Argentina are produced.

Responsible for the project, and with absolute freedom, both in the vineyard and the winery is the good friend of Constantine Krontiras and known to us, Panos Zoumpoulis. The experienced oenologist transmitted his passion and faith for biodynamic cultivation in the Krontiras family that built the winery, following biodynamic standards and supporting the architectural approach of ancient sacred geometry.

For Petit Verdot Panos Zoumpoulis exploits the ideal microclimate with large temperature differences between day and night, achieving excellent phenolic ripening of the fruit with minimal interference. The wine was fermented in stainless steel, medium-volume, tanks with indigenous yeasts and then it was aged for 18 months in oak barrels. It was bottled and rested for 6 more months before it is ready to enjoy.

You will definitely love this one because Dona Silvina Petit Verdot Single Vineyard is a benchmark of refinement, concentration, and complexity. It is the wine for which Panos Zoumpoulis is really proud. And you should know that he does not say much.

It has impressive deep purple opaque color. It has an intoxicating nose with intense black fruit aromas like blueberry, cassis and ripe blackberry are combined with forest floor and cedar while rosemary, sage, and tea leaves appear gradually. Vanilla, toffee, and smoke complete the lovely aromatic bouquet.

On the palate, it is full-bodied and concentrated and it has medium well-polished tannins and noticeable acidity. Blackberry and blueberry are dominating while blackberry, dipped in chocolate and spices will remain in the mouth in the long-lasting aftertaste.
