Reviews of purchase Chacra, Barda Pinot Noir Patagonia Rio Negro 2008
Wine of deep ruby color with garnet reflections.
The taste is very smooth, soft, round, despite the high alcohol content. A good balance of acidity and fruitiness. Juicy, spicy and minerally, with sweet red fruit flavors of raspberry, cherry and rose petals. It felt nobility.
Bouquet is very complicated: first fruit, a little later - and then flower - very light mushroom tones. Barda offers a rich aroma of candied red fruits, wild strawberries, raspberries, rose petals, mocha, spices, herbs, smoked meat and tobacco.
Ideal with roast duck, beef, game, salmon, veal.

Marquis Piero della Rocchetta Inchisa - one of the most famous Italian wine makers, members of the clan della Rocchetta Inchisa grandson Marchese Mario Incisa della Roquette and nephew Nicolo Incisa della Roquette. His ancestors were engaged in wine in the XVII century, and his grandfather created the great Sassicaia. Piero decided to prove that something is capable of without the help of family. Rejecting the brilliant financial career, he became involved with wine. Bodega Chakra (Bodega Chacra) appeared in 2004, when Piero bought an abandoned vineyard with 1932 vines of Pinot Noir, located in the valley of the Rio Negro, in northern Patagonia. Terroir Chacra, towering 250 meters above sea level, on a combination of climate and calcareous soil is ideal for growing Pinot Noir. By the vineyard in 1932 and its own newly planted vineyards were added in 1955 and 1967. Incisa produces a separate wine with each of them. Piero also produces more wine Barda - "Hedges". It serves as a second wine farm on the model of Bordeaux chateau.
