Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Catenas are considered Argentina’s premier winemaking family thanks to the vision and dedication of Nicolas Catena who helped put the country on the map for world-class Malbec. Luca is the brainchild of Nicolas’ daughter Laura who decided to name her new label after her son, Luca. All of the wines are crafted with the finest fruit from selected vineyards in Mendoza to create approachable yet complex wines which make a handsome addition to any cellar.

Beso de Dante was created as a homage to two classic Bordeaux grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Malbec was traditionally used in Bordeaux blends before the arrival of phylloxera which destroyed much of the region’s vineyards. Laura sources the fruit from specific plots in Vista Flores and Altamira, vinifying the grapes in individual parcels before she creates the final blend.

The final touch is a period of ageing in oak barrels which adds hints of spice and woodsmoke to the intense cassis, blackberry and dark cherry core. On the palate there’s a generous full body, smooth tannins, and a long finish seasoned with cedar, tobacco leaf, and wild berry notes. A great red to pair with hearty dishes like a prime ribeye steak, beef stews, venison or a wild boar ragu served with fresh pappardelle pasta.
