A rather heavy Malbec. Good on the nose, decent on the palette initially, but the finish is less pleasant.

Peppery flavour that sits lightly on the tongue. Pairs amazing with truffles!

Decent sipper. Vanilla notes are nice, but too peppery.

Alberto Antonini put his finger prints on this wine 10 years ago and the quality still remains. All grapes sources from Agrelo in Mendoza. A very good bridge to more Terroir driven Malbec from Argentina

Good balanced, smooth taste with a very minuscule dry, sweet finish. Great for dinner.
