Ricardo Santos was the first winemaker to export this varietal from Argentina, and he began the process of making Malbec Argentina’s signature wine. This Malbec has fruity, aromatic characteristics of blackberry and ripe cherry. This first release has great volume and depth with a long finish, maintaining the soft tannins and easy drinkability of a classic Malbec.
Tercos is owned by brothers Pedro and Patricio Santos (the adult sons of pioneering Argentine winemaker Ricardo Santos). Patricio is the winemaker while Pedro heads up the winery’s marketing and sales efforts. The name of the wine, which means “stubborn” in Spanish, underscores the tenacious, burro-like commitment to quality that the Santos brothers possess.
