Description: Marcelo Pelleriti is the first Argentine winemaker to receive 100 points from Robert Parker for his 2010 Chateau La Violette Pomerol. Everything Marcelo touches turns to gold and his secondary focus in his native land is gaining lots of attention and esteem from the wine press.
Deep violet purple in color. Aromas are beautifully layered with blackberries, vanilla, and cream. The palate is layered with an intensity that builds into the long finish.
