' Quintessential - Bianchi Organic Cabernet Sauvignon

Bianchi Organic Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


Fresh and intense aromas of bright red fruit stand out along aromas of warm spices. Notes of fig and berries, together with round tannins mark the unctuous palate. The juicy fruit flavors carry on to the finish.

Wine Facts

The organic grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from Bodegas Bianchi’s Finca Doña Elsa and Finca Asti vineyards, both of which are 30-year-old estate vines. The soils are of alluvial origin with a loamy, sandy texture and medium-sized boulder layers which impart a mineral character onto the wine.

In the southern mountains of Mendoza, where all species coexist in harmony, lives the goat. This goat inspired the Bianchi Organic label and is intended to represent Bodegas Bianchi’s commitment to the environment. From natural soils, healthy vineyards and thriving biodiversity, comes this Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks to the region’s unique terroir.

FAMILY: One dream. One family legacy. Two terroirs. Since 1928, these three pillars have been the lasting values that have guided Argentina’s Bodegas Bianchi for four generations. This family-owned winery is situated in the sub-regions of both the Uco Valley and San Rafael.

San Rafael is one of only two DOCs in Argentina. It’s farther south than the Uco, so the climate tends to be a bit warmer, with sandy soils and lower altitudes. However, the east-west orientation of the mountain ranges allows for a funneling of cool air from the Andes resulting in longer hangtime for the grapes. Bodegas Bianchi is a leader in San Rafael, producing wines with excellent structure and complexity.

Water management and energy efficiency have made Bodegas Bianchi one of the most sustainable and innovative wineries in Argentina. Silvio Alberto, chief winemaker and one of the most well-known winemakers in all of Argentina, relishes marrying the traditions of yesteryear with the modern processes of today such as using clay amphorae for the winery’s top Malbecs and red blends.
