De este grupo conozco los vinos argentinos Callejon del Crimen porque se venden aqui en todas las tiendas de El Corte Inglés, y sus vinos de Ribera del Duero Pagos de Valcerracin y Valpincia. No se consiguen aqui los vinos italianos que producen. Son sobresalientes en calidad y muy buena relación precio calidad.Enhorabuena!
