Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has an attractive and intense violet color. On the nose, it displays ripe red fruit aromas, such as plum, with a strong floral presence, combined with vanilla and chocolate hints granted by its oak aging.

In the mouth, it is a mild wine with sweet and velvety tannins. It has good balance, elegance and personality.

Blend: 95% Malbec, 3% Bonarda, 2% Syrah
