"Youthful, taut and fragrant with floral aromas, succulent red fruits and a tangy, appropriately Italianate finish from Piero Incisa della Rocchetta. Drink: 2015-19"

"They went for a slightly more reductive style in 2013, which shows as austere and backward in the 2013 Cincuenta y Cinco. That, combined with a cooler growing season resulted in a very elegant, subtle wine that is light-colored and has floral (roses, lilies) notes alongside wild strawberries and raspberries. It feels light but has very good concentration of flavors and enough clout, while keeping the poise. The tannins feel very refined, there is good freshness and acidity. It should have a very nice evolution in bottle. This would be the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. Bravo! 16,000 bottles."
"Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia. Barda is farmed certified organic and biodynamic grapes are hand harvested & sorted prior to fermentation with natural yeasts. The wine is aged 11 months in French oak barrels (25% new and 75% one year old) following a malolactic fermentation and a single gravity racking." -Importer
"In 2004, Piero Incisa della Rocchetta purchased the first of Bodega Chacra's vineyards, a property with an existing, though abandoned, vineyard planted in 1932. This singular vineyard of gnarled Pinot Noir vines, planted on their own rootstocks, is head trained and produces tiny bunches of small, concentrated berries. The vineyard's pale, dry, porous soils are dominated by gravel and coarse alluvial pebbles with significant limestone content. Since acquisition of the 1932 vineyard, Piero Incisa has discovered and purchased two other old vine Pinot Noir vineyards which will produce two further Bodega Chacra single-vineyard wines beginning in the 2006 vintage. The first, from a vineyard planted in 1955, will be called "Cinquenta y Cinco." The second, from vines planted in 1967, will similarly be called "Sesanta y Sete." A fourth wine, called "Barda" ("The Ridge"), will be produced in later vintages. Conceived in the idea of a second wine, it will be a blend of components from the single-vineyard wines as well as wine from a recently planted, ten-acre vineyard on the original 1932 property.
