Product information

Caro was born of the alliance between two wine cultures, French and Argentine, two families, two noble grape varieties, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Nicolás Catena and Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), vignerons since the 19th century, have combined their deep knowledge of Mendoza's high altitude terroir and the art of winemaking to create a unique wine: Caro. Two cultures, two families, two varietals, one wine.

Tasting Notes
This wine has a dark, intense colour, with hints of violet. The nose reveals a complex mix of aromas including raspberry, black pepper, violets, cloves and subtle notes of dark chocolate.
The idea of a partnership between the Rothschild and the Catena families was born in 1999. The Catena family has been producing wines for four generations, their vast knowledge of the high altitude terroirs of Mendoza has ranked them amongst Argentina's most renown Malbec producers.
Regional Information
Nestled at the foothills of the snowcapped Andes mountains, Mendoza is known as the best wine producing region in Argentina. With vines planted on high plateaux between 800 and 1200m above sea level, Mendoza's vineyards are known as the highest in the world. Sheltered from the rain by the mountains to the West and the Pampa to the East, the region is very arid. Mendoza wines draw their character from an exceptional sun exposure and wide temperature variations between night and day.

Vinification Details
CARO is made with the utmost care. Grapes are carefully selected and hand harvested. After destemming, they are placed in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for alcoholic fermentation. Maceration lasts for a period of 20 days with gentle pump-over to ease tannin extraction and fix the colour. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in tanks, then the wine is transferred into French oak barrels made by the Tonnellerie des Domaines in Pauillac (80% new oak) for a period of 18 months.

ok, personally over priced

Having read the previous review I bought this wine. All I can say is that it is ok. Would I buy it again? Probably not, too expensive for what you get. It is not full bodied and over priced... should be around the £20

Amazing wine

We love all the Rothchilds wines but this one is the most special. A wonderful wine, rich, dark, fruity with an edge of spice. Goes tremendously with red meat and venison. It is very expensive so we buy it offer and have it as a extra special treat.
