Claroscuro - (Argentina)

Claroscuro logo

Claroscuro is a tendency in the art world wanting to emphasize the extremes of colors and light impressions. In both photography and painting, dark effects are represented even darker than these actually are and lighter effects are even lighter. Thus the midtones disappear and the extremes are amplified. The story of Claroscuro starts in 2012 when Gustavo and Paula Cucchiara passed here and immediately fell in love with the beautiful Finca San Francisco with its equally beautiful views and majestic surroundings. At over 1100m height and with the impressive Andes as background, Uco Valley is a unique location for growing grapes. Since they keep art as important value and consider wine making as such, they want to promote art through their wines and have their wines tasted through art. Each bottle receives a personal work of art from Argentinian artists and is thus a representative with a unique identity. The vineyard is subdivided into different terroirs which make it possible to create different characters with different grapes Each bottle has a painting with similar characteristics and make more than just a nice bottle of wine from each cuvée.

About the winery

Dark blue to purple tones. Dark fruit is accompanied by remarkably floral tones (typical of the Vista Flores terroir) and other complex tones obtained by ripening. Due to the cool vintage, this translates mainly into rose aromas. Typical Malbec features: Intense but soft and elegant. Nice and juicy final. Delicious glass of wine!

Intense, ruby red color. Dark red fruits accompanied by herbs and other complex tones. The maturing on French oak brings out secondary flavors such as chocolate, cocoa and a hint of leather. Its round character and body confirm the optimum ripeness of the grapes. The long, balanced and elegant finals characterize this typical Cabernet Franc from cool areas.

100% Pinot Noir. Very light rosé color. Remarkably fine but spicy pearl. Lightly fruity and floral aromas such as raspberry, strawberry and a hint of red blossoms. Lively and refreshing character that combines finesse with interesting complex tones. In short, a bottle of bubbles that surprises and doesn't get bored easily. Cheers!

Light, clear color with garnet red tones. Controlled intensity and a lot of elegance. Pinot Noir with a lot of structure, fraîcheur and finesse. Dominated by cherries, white fruits and delicate herbs. The controlled maturation of wood certainly gives added value and results in a Pinot Noir with considerable storage potential.
