Price: $9.95
Made in: Mendoza, Argentina
By: Argento Wine Company
Varietal: Pinot Grigio

This Argentinian Pinot Grigio smells quite sweet at first, but not the typical fruitiness of this style. After breathing, it does get pretty close to the aromas of a Pinot Grigio. The taste is pretty good right of the top. Slightly dry, fruity, sweet and with a little sourness in the finish. Very, very drinkable for the price.

Rating: 3.7/5

Argento Bonarda Mendoza 2012

Price: $9.95
Made in: Argentina
By: Argento Wine Company
Varietal: Bornada

Mild leather scent with dark berries. Wet mouthfeel with just a little tannins. Does get a bit dryer as you drink it. Blackberry taste with other light berries. Aromas of dates eventually come out, and some plum notes in the taste, hints of wood in the aftertaste. This Italian varietal is not so common here, so it’s a treat to have this one from Argentina. A really good wine for the price. Enjoyed with pasta.
