Verum, from the Bodega del Rio Elorza, is a new boutique, family winery with 45 acres of high-density vineyards in the Alto Valle de Rio Negro, Patagonia. The winemakers are internationally renowned Alberto Antonini (of Poggiotondo in Tuscany) and locals Agustín Lombroni and Mariano Vignoni. Their experience and understanding of this unique Patagonian terroir, along with Marcelo Casazza’s precise vineyard management, impart great personality to the wines. Verum is a shining example of the awesome winemaking potential in Patagonia.
Planted with a high density (5,500 plants per hectare) 20 hectares of specially selected clones of Malbec, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, Verum takes advantage of the strong diurnal shift in Patagonia to produce cool-climate wines the likes of which you’ve never tasted from Argentina.
