Malbec De Potrero
To give birth to a wine of excellence, the vine needs a Terroir that challenges its potential to the maximum. To give birth to a player of excellence, you need a Potrero where a young footballer can stimulate his virtues and forge his talent. In Argentina, where for many people lands from 'the ends of the world' exist, both concepts are combined: Terroir and Potrero. And as if it were the land blessed by contradiction, the poorer the Terroir and the Potrero, the better the results. Whoever can stand out with the ball in an arid land, with slopes, and puddles of water, will have a distinguished game that will stand out in the best stadiums in the world. That vine that tolerates the harsh cold of the night and the scorching sun of the day, the lack of humidity and the height of the Andes to survive, will make its fruits ripen exceptionally.
