Luca is Laura Catena's private project. Laura has left her mark on the wine world and is often called 'the face of Argentine wine', because she has meant a lot to the country. She recently presented her 100-year plan: “I want every collector in the world to have Nicolás Catena Zapata in their basement – that is my dream”.

Another dream of Laura Catena was the creation of Luca, named after her eldest son. With Luca she wants to make quality wines, where the perfect terroir, low yields per hectare and state-of-the-art winemaking are the key words. Luca's vineyards are located at an altitude of 900 to 1500 meters and are among the highest in Mendoza. Here you will find old vines, which may no longer produce much, but keep the quality of the vineyard (and therefore the wines) high. She wants to show the best expression of each grape variety. Luca has planted six grape varieties in total: chardonnay, malbec, pinot noir, syrah, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc.

The grapes come from 'Gualtallary', a vineyard in Tupungato, at the foot of the Andes. This made Laura Catena the first to make a Pinot Noir from an extreme altitude, namely 1500 meters above sea level. The warm days alternate with extremely cold nights, which contributes to slow, even ripening and retention of fresh acidity. A traditional vinification takes place, followed by ten months of aging in oak barrels, 10% of which are new and the remainder second-year and third-year oak. The Laura Catena Luca Pinot Noir G Lot has a beautiful garnet red color in the glass. In the nose we smell strawberries, cherries, raspberries, leather and herbs. On the palate this is a full Pinot Noir with notes of leather, raspberries and spicy oak. The wine combines the elegance of the Old World with the ripe fruit of the New World. Delicious, lightly chilled drink. Delicious with grilled salmon and tuna. Also nice in combination with roast duck breast with cranberry sauce.
