Italian immigrants introduced the Sangiovese grape to Argentina, and there is still a deep appreciation for Italian culture in this Latin American country. This deep red Sangiovese has great aromatic intensity of ripe strawberries and black currants. It has a good balance between fruit and acidity, making it ideal for Italian food featuring tomato sauces.
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.
