This Malbec presents itself as deep red laced with violet overlays, with an elegant and complex style where notes of plum, raspberry, violets and vanilla invade the nose. To the mouth, the wine is balanced and concentrated with well-rounded tannins which emphasize its personality. A long and smooth finish reminds us of the wine's time in contact with the oak. Enjoy it with red meats, pasta and fine fermented cheeses.
