Winemaker's Notes:

A wonderful red tone with violet reflections, clean and very bright. In the nose there is an explosion of cherry fruit, fresh raspberry and plum. Toasty scents and subtle hints of vanilla are indications of the wine's passage through small oak barrique. The entry in the mouth is juicy, filling up the sense of taste with an invasion of fruits, honey, a touch of caramel, and gentle notes of minerals and mint; further adding to the interesting character of this wine. I truly find myself in front of an exceptional Malbec, where the hands of the viticulturist and enologist are clearly expressed. There is no need to wait for this wine, as it is drinking so nicely at the moment.
