The Pisano vineyards belong to a group of small family vignerons with an artisan tradition of making wines that reflect the character of the land and the people. Francesco Pisano arrived in Uruguay in 1870 from Italy (the great grandfather of the current owners). The original vineyards were planted in 1914 by his son Cesare. Today, this winemaking tradition continues and they produce some of the country`s most prestigious and best wines with distinctive character oriented to the high quality, niche market. These hand crafted wines are produced in limited quantities and total production at the Pisano family cellars is only 18,000 cases per year across the range of these award winning varietals. Tasting Notes: Made from 100% Tannat grown on clay and calcareous soils. The wine spends 3-4 months ageing in new French oak barrels which impart a subtle sweet spice and smoke character. Deep ruby in colour and very concentrated, notes of plums, blackberries and damson fruit combine perfectly with the well balanced toast and oak notes. Food: Grilled steak with pepper sauce, strong roasted meats, game and roasted vegetables.
