Memories and nostalgia for the 1960s, when very basic tools were used to produce a wine that combined the rustic variety País with a bit of Malbec, which was called ‘Terciopelo’ (velvet) for its soft, smooth texture on the palate.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
Aterciopelado means velvety, like the soft and silky palate on this wine.
