La Mano Derecha 2017 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
- Christopher Ermisch was the original founder of Bodega Calle, along with Elvira Calle, a well-known local businesswoman and philanthropist.
- Named Alberti 154 as it is the address of the winery in the district of Lújan de Cuyo. Dating to 1925, it resides on what’s now on a residential street on the corner of 3 other founding wineries of this classic zone known as Drummond.
- A small-lot, gravity-flow, red wine production studio, Bodega Calle places great emphasis on gently crafting wines with regional distinction and grand personality.
ABOUT THE WINE
- We’ve long loved the rich and ripe suppleness that Cruz de Piedra offers to Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. This vineyard combined with fruit from Agrelo really makes this a stand out farmed organically.
