Bodega Filus

Filus Winery is a true reflection of the passion, dedication and pursuit of excellence from its founders, Ambrosio Di Leo and Gustavo Capone. From families linked to viticulture in Mendoza, they have achieved their dream of producing wines of excellent quality in their own winery founded in 1997. The winery's capacity is 2.5 million litres, with both epoxy-coated concrete vats and stainless steel tanks, a reception area with double grape selection in the sorting table, a French oak barrel room with temperature and humidity control, a bottling line and labelling and storage rooms for their wines. Filus Wines owns six vineyards in different regions of Mendoza and Salta, amounting to 150 hectares. They are located in the Uco Valley, Mendoza for Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, and in Cafayate, Salta for the Torrontes. The vineyards where Malbec comes from are located in prestigious regions of the Uco Valley.

Tasting Notes

Intense purplish black colour. A complex nose revealing many layers of aromas. At the outset flavours of black fruit, coffee and marmalade are clearly evident, followed by lighter hints of mint, black pepper and chocolate. Great aromatic intensity. On the palate, there is good weight with noticeable and very ripe tannins.

Food Matches

A fabulous match for red meat and game.
