Petit Verdot is a strain that until 1852 was mixed with that of Malbec.

In the middle of one of the most beautiful practices out there, choosing a label on a gondola of great variety, and having taken one in hand, the seller's comment interrupted the silence: “I finally see someone who chooses a Petit Verdot.” And of course, the surprise wasn't so much. Petit Verdot is a strain that until 1852 was mixed with that of Malbec and its main use is to provide aroma, color, acid and tannin to many of the great red wines circulating. It has the particularity of being a grape that ripens after the other strains do it, so it does not adapt easily to all soils. In Argentina there are about 500 hectares planted and that is why it has not been widely spread. It is a red grape with very good acidity and long duration in mouth.Fond de Cave Reserva 2014 from Bodega Trapiche is a good exponent to taste. Two aromatic descriptors stand out above the rest and provide the distinction of this grape: graphite and grass, as well as cherry and plum.The cup is dyed in its service vivacious red colors with violet reflections. On the palate it is voluminous, with pleasant and sweet tannins. It is juicy and has persistent notes of vanilla. A round and balanced wine that can not fail to taste, and thus contribute to removing the amazement of your choice.
