Winemaker's Notes:

Intense red color with purplish notes, which are typical of an Argentine Malbec. The color and flavors in this wine remind you of fresh, sweet purple plums – velvety layers of flavor are full and lasting-typical of an Argentine Malbec. Any red meat, especially cooked outdoors, is a perfect partner.

About Piattelli:

To understand our essence is to understand that Piattelli first and foremost is a unique and special place—the soil, the water, the air, and the climate—the terroir. Out of this place has evolved a people, a culture and a passion for wine. From that people, a select few have joined to form a team of specialists who are defined by our shared values and commitment to the truth and beauty that can only be found in our estate-level winemaking process. From our shared vision a respect for traditional winemaking techniques and appreciation for contemporary flavors have fused. Finally, Piattelli must be understood to be a story with a beautiful history, a bright future and a strong legacy.

So what is the essence of Piattelli Vineyards? Perhaps most keenly it can be described as the quite, heartfelt invitation we extend to each and every wine consumer to come and share in the various dimensions of our identity by enjoying the beautiful experience of drinking our wines, which are easy to drink yet delightfully expressive.
