Tringario Vastardo Petit Verdot 2017Brand - Tringario Wines
Fruit: 〚black & inky〛
Inky is the word most commonly associated with Petit Verdot. This dark and mysterious wine has a lot going on, but it’s a quiet kind of power. Bing and black cherries with floral tobacco and cedar are the first notes that jump out. More dark fruits - mulberry, black plum, and heavy herbs - fried sage, black pepper, and toasty vanilla. The alcohol is assertive and the tannins are very grippy, but it all feels in tune. If this wine were a person, it would be a very beefy bodyguard in an expensive suit. Yum!
Serving Temperature:65 °F or 16 °C

The family has been winemaking for the last 100 years. My great-grandfather started with the winery in 1920, and since then every generation in the family has been involved in some way or another.
I have been around the winery since I was a boy, helping with the harvest, driving the forklift, or doing whatever was necessary.
Then came the time to go to university, and I decided to study agriculture and winemaking. When I finished I worked in Maquis, in Colchagua Valley, and then in Cain Vineyards and Winery, in Napa Valley.
When I came back from the US, in 2009, I started to work with my family, and back in 2015, I decided to start my own winery, named Tringario.
