In 1902, Nicolás Catena arrived in Argentina from Italy. In Finca La Libertad in Mendoza, he continued an ancient tradition in new lands. Jorge, his grandson, inherited this legacy and passion for winemaking. Today, Viviana Catena, Jorge's daughter, and her family continue the traditional winemaking methods passed down by their great-grandfather.

Ricominciare only uses grapes from their San Vicente Vineyard, in La Consulta, in the Valle de Uco. This vineyard has been in the family for more than 50 years. Deep sandy soils, the high altitude of the vineyards and the water coming from the thaw of the Andes Mountains combine to create wines of unique personality.

The harvest is done 100% by hand. Only native yeasts are used and fermentation is done in small tanks plot by plot. The wines are bottled with no fining and only a very light filtration. The aim is always elegance.

Critic tasting note: "This is from a sector of the vineyard that's just third of a hectare, in the shade of poplars and willows that delay ripeness and lend more freshness, which is what comes through in this franc with aromas of red fruits and herbal notes. The body is light to medium with fine, sharp tannins, fresh acidity and fruit flavors that dominate the palate. One for baked meat empanadas." - 92/100, Patricio Tapia - Descorchados
