Zolo Signature Rosé 2020
REGION: Las Llamas Estate (Agrelo) and El Jarillal Estate (Alto Agrelo), Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza.
Zolo was created in 2003 by of one of Argentina’s leading women in wine, Patricia Ortiz, when she established one of Argentina’s most forward-thinking wineries. Under Patricia’s leadership, Zolo stays true to her vision of creating wines with elegance and identity, reflective of their terroir and respectful to the environment. All Zolo wines are made from estate-grown fruit which have been sustainably farmed. The vineyards are located in the premier region of Luján de Cuyo: Finca Las Llamas in Agrelo and Finca El Jarillal in Alto Agrelo. The winemaking team is led by Fabian Valenzuela and famed winemaker from Petrus Jean Claude Berrouet.
The Zolo classic tier wines are fruit-forward and great value. The Zolo Reserves and Zolo Blacks, with their ultra-high concentration, long aging in new French oak, and aromatic complexity are made for those special occasions when one needs a wine to “blow your hat off.” The man on the Zolo label represents Patricia’s husband, who was left solo in Buenos Aires.
A former Doctor, Patricia is committed to giving back to the community. Patricia also serves as President of Bodegas Argentinas; the first woman to hold this prestigious position.
