Carlos Basso Dos Fincas Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec

Carlos Basso Dos Fincas Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec


  • The use of two separate vineyards in Argentina is a traditional practice to safeguard against the threat of hail. For the Basso family, it also allows them to make a more interesting blend by combining the attributes of two distinct microclimates.
  • The dark, powerful fruit from their vineyard in San Carlos, matched with the softer, more nuanced fruit from their vineyard in Tunuyan makes for a memorable wine. A terrific value!

Varietal Composition: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon / 40% Malbec

Elaboration: Fermented and aged in stave studded concrete tanks for 9 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Excellent quality price ratio. Shows jammy berry aromas backed by plump black berry and strawberry flavors. Solid and flush throughout with surprising softness.




Originally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine in Argentina since 1922. In 1935, after owning another winery, Adolfo Basso and his brother Tulio purchased the Santa Ana Winery, eventually turning it into one of Argentina’s largest bodegas.

In 1996, seeking to simplify their lives with small-production winemaking, the family sold the winery and used the profits to purchase and remodel a small winery in Carrodilla, Mendoza. Here, Bodega Amalia was born. Carlos Basso and his son Adolfo manage the day-to-day operation. Of their three labels, Carlos Basso Signature is their premium line, offering small quantities of high-quality wine, which is among the best in Argentina.
