|Tittarelli Wines have been launched in India by Jagdeep Chowgule of Best Foods & Wine Impex of Goa, a company focused on bringing in the best wines from Argentina into the Indian market. Says Chowgule, “Argentina is renowned worldwide for its great varieties and delicious wines. Thanks to its vast, unique land and exceptional weather, the production of wine has always been one of the most active sectors of Argentina’s economy.|
We are very proud and happy to be associated with the rich and historic wine brand of Tittarelli, which is much loved by the British, French, Americans, Canadians and Brazilians.
Tittarelli has its vineyards and cellars in Rivadavia, Mendoza, Argentina. Its lands, mostly desert and at the foot of the Andes mountains, stretch across 1500 hectares, with the vineyards at a height of 1200 metres. The vineyards have grapes of different varieties that have adapted perfectly to the soil. Some of these varieties are: Chardonnay, Torrontes and Sauvignon Blanc in the white variety, while in the red variety, they grow Malbec, Syrah and Tempranillo.
The special Malbec variety of grapes from which Titarrelli wines are made are cultivated only in Mendoza. Because of the dryness of the climate, diseases such as mildew and botrytis are rare, and most grapes ungrafted. These conditions, together with the scarce rainfall and the sandy and permeable soil make the area the most appropriate for the cultivation of wine, making it possible for it to compete with and excel the best and most traditional European wineries.
The Tittarelli range comprise super premium wines, ideal to drink with grilled meat, chicken or meat with wine sauces, pasta with black olives or semi-hard cheese. The white wines go well with fish while the Tittarelli rosé wines go very well with rich spicy Indian food.
According to Mr Cameron McPhee, Sommelier “There is no place in the world that can make a Malbec like Mendoza, Argentina with its immense fruits and tannic value that can withstand spicy flavours and go well with any Indian dish. A truly unique wine brought to India with passion from Argentina. With the European influence on the vine growing and the forty plus years of vine age, Mendoza, Argentina is really producing world class wines at affordable prices.”
Mr Chowgule concludes by saying, “Best Foods & Wines Impex want to introduce Argentinian wines that are distinctive, high quality and also create an awareness for their fine lineage and establish Tittarelli and Malbec as Argentina’s flagship wine and varietal, respectively”.
