Carcassone is high-end Bodega Escorihuela's 'cheap' brand. Escorihuela in turn is owned by Argentine wine legend Nicolas Catena, so despite the AR$10 price tag the wine is drawing on a solid background of knowledge and resources. And it shows - it's a very pleasant, easy to drink everyday wine with nothing outstanding about it, other than price.
