Winemaker Appreciation Day:
Algodon's Mauro Nosenzo
Every year on September 7, the country of Argentina comes together to celebrate local winemakers and the best South American wines on the market. And we at Algodon Wines want to join in!
For those of you who don’t know the man behind our prestigious wines, let us introduce you to Mauro Nosenzo.
He determines the exact moment each varietal is ready, and he knows when the flavors will captivate your taste buds. This leads to some of the best red wines ever.
As a 15-year veteran of the Algodon Wine Estates team, he makes the best Argentina wines you’ll ever drink.
ALGODON’S UNIQUE WINEMAKING PROCESS
We use a unique winemaking process called microvinification.
We put our best unpressed grapes into French oak barrels to ferment for 60 days at a controlled temperature.
Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation separates the pulp and the skin of the new wine, we age the wine in barrels for up to 24 months.
The entire vinification and maturing process happens in a single French oak barrel, marrying the grape and the vessel perfectly. And that’s the key to Algodon’s ultra-fine varietals and blends.
MAURO’S WINE RECOMMENDATIONS
If you’re looking for a wine, who better to ask than the man who made it!
Mr. Nosenzo recommends the field blend wine Malbec-Bonarda “...for the price-quality value.” As a very unique story-wine, it’s definitely one of our favorite Malbec wines.
“With an extended co-fermentation, this wine delivers a wine of the best grapes from the Cuadro Benegas district,” he says.
