Tilia has been hand-crafted to demonstrate true varietal character. The brand is named after the Tilia (Linden) tree commonly found throughout Argentina's wine country. Vineyard workers often make tea from the flowers of this tree and enjoy time sitting in the shade after a hard day's work. This wine is a tribute to those workers and to hte Argentinean way of living life to the fullest, enjoying every moment and relaxing in the natural environment the land provides.
Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda, in the Eastern region of Mendoza, by Alejandro Viggiani.
This wine is fermented over 12 days, at a maximum temperature of 28°C, which helps the characteristic flavours and aromas to develop. The wine then spends 9 months in French and American oak before bottling.
This medium-bodied, easy-drinking red wine has aromas and flavours of plum, blackberry and dark chocolate, with hint of pepper and spice.
