Lambrusco: vine that grows wild along forest edges. The word ‘Lambrusco’ derives from two Latin words – labrum, meaning margin, and ruscum, meaning wild plant.
Grasparossa: Italian word “Graspajo Rojo” meaning red branch, making reference to the leaves and branches turning blood red before falling.

Virgil, the greatest ancient Roman poet, mentions the vitis lambrusca in his Fifth Eclogue, in the early Christian era, 2,000 years ago.

Now, Pumalek aims to innovate in the Argentine market, breaking new grounds and promoting the Lambrusco Grasparossa varietal.

Pumalek’s wines are distinguished by fruity flavors and aromas, acidity, freshness, tannicity and subtle astringency.

These characteristics make of this wine a friendly partner of traditional Argentine food that is rich in aromas and flavors and help clean the palate when it comes to greasy dishes such as asado, chorizo (sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), mollejas (sweetbreads), empanadas (meat pie), stuffed pasta and stews.

This varietal found in Mendoza a place to flourish and deliver original and authentic wines of great intensity and personality.
