Appellation: Uco Valley, Mendoza
Sub-region: Los Chacayes, Altamira and Gualtallary
Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec
This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes—a clear expression of the Uco Valley—intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety’s great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.
Decant for 30 minutes before pouring. Serve at 15-17°C (59-63°F), with stews, red meats or simply enjoy it with mature cheeses. Store in a fresh, dry place, at temperatures below 15°C
(59°F), and keeping it away from light sources.
