Graffigna

OVER 145 YEARS OF WINEMAKING TRADITION, PASSION AND INNOVATION IN SAN JUAN, ARGENTINA.
The history of Graffigna is entwined in the history of Argentina and began when an Italian immigrant arrived in Argentina with the clear objective of discovering a new and unchartered wine terroir. The Winery was founded in 1870 by Santiago Graffigna in the province of San Juan. Santiago Graffigna was a true entrepreneur, an innovator and a risk-taker who gave everything in order to achieve his goals. In 2009, Graffigna was recognized as "Winery of the Year" in the USA by the Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec in 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010 Graffigna Centenario & Grand Reserve Malbec wines received 90 Points by Robert Parker.

The history of Graffigna is marked by the seal of the pioneering spirit and the innovation of its founder, Don Santiago Graffigna. It is a premium Argentine wine that transmits exceptional quality, intensity and above all, a passion for things that make for a unique wine experience. Graffigna is an invitation to discover and to explore; an adventure that begins with the uncorking and sharing of a single bottle.

Graffigna 'Grand Reserve' Malbec 2010
88  Stephen Tanzer 
Stephen Tanzer 88"Good saturated medium red-ruby. Aromas of dark plum, mocha and woodsmoke. Supple, full and sweet but a bit low-toned, with sassafras and earth flavors dominating. Richer and chewier than the 2011 reserve malbec--more tannic too--but showing less floral lift and verve."

Graffigna 'Centenario' Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
"Graffigna Centenario Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby red with purple hues. It has a vivid nose of spices and blackberries along with toasted aromas from it oak aging. Structured and round with black fruit flavors and hints of vanilla. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon." ~Winery Notes

Wine Spectator 86"Ripe, with medium-weight plum sauce, fig and blackberry notes backed by ample licorice and toast. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now."

Graffigna 'Centenario' Pinot Grigio 2011
"Elegance, jasmine bouquet and the appearance of peach and apricot. Very fresh, with a young palate, subtly fruity and floral. Harmonious and refined, with a very pleasant finish. Due to this variety's reduced and covoted growth, it is produced in controlled amounts." ~Winery Notes

Graffigna 'Grand Reserve' Malbec 2008
 "Displays an intense and deep ruby red color, with traces of violet. A very aromatic nose presents the variety's typical plum aromas, combined with smoke and chocolate notes, a result of the oak and bottle ageing. On the palate, rich and sensual, well structured and perfectly balanced." ~ Winery
