Drink it now or cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it for an hour.

Awarded as one of the "Most Influential Women Winemakers" by The Drink Business magazine in 2012, Susana Balbo was the first Argentinian woman to graduate in enology. After almost twenty years of working for some wineries such as Michel Torino, Martins, and Catena Zapata she created her own company in 1999, in the heart of Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. Her company, where she is now supported by her children José and Ana, is characterized by a young and dynamic style and a philosophy aimed at constant innovation.

This is a Bordeaux blend with a prevalence of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from the Agrelo vineyard which surrounds the cellar, planted by Susana Balbo herself in 2001. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 15 months.

Brioso is a smooth and round red wine with powerful yet silky tannins and a delicious concentration of ripe black fruits, figs, dark chocolate, toasted bread notes, and a light spicy touch. It is a wine of good consistency but not heavy, with excellent acidity and freshness. Perfect with roast lamb, pappardelle with meat sauce and polenta with truffles.
