The history of Nieto Senetiner Winery dates back to 1888, when Italian immigrants founded it and grew the first vineyards in the province of Mendoza. Over the first decades of the last century, the winery was run by several families who succeeded in passing on the secret of fine winemaking and the love for their land. In 1969, it was acquired by the families Nieto and Sentinel, who expanded the facilities, signaling the beginning of a new stage of growth.

The vineyards sit on clay loam soil with pebbles. Not very deep soils. The vines for this selection are 30 years old. Grapes are handpicked and selected. Wine production included cold maceration and daily pumping over. Malolactic fermentation was completed without induction.

The 2013 vintage is an intense wine with a well-defined profile, deep red hue with remarkable shades of purple and blue. The nose has intense aromas of plum and cassis with subtle vanilla notes. The mouth is elegant, fresh, and delicate and has medium structure. Pair with grilled or roast red meat, game meat, semi-cured cheese and stuffed pasta or dry pasta with spicy sauces.
