The name Amaru, which comes from Quechua, the native language of the original people of the Valleys, reminds us of the vitality of the water that irrigates the land. This wine, like its name, encompasses the mystic spirit of the Calchaquíes Valleys. Its strong character evokes the desert; its intense, distinct aroma reminds us of the scarce water that flows by the vineyards, and its texture concentrates the essence of the altitude of the floor of the valley. Amaru shares in the vibrant vitality of the soil, the water and the desert.

This line includes Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrontés and Torrontés Rosé wines.
