Tasting notes

Brooding and intense. A classic Malbec. From Nieto's premium Agrelo vineyards, with flavours reminiscent of those desert soils. Dark, dense complex nose with sweet cranberries, blackberries and rich mocha characters. The palate is smooth and rounded with supple tannins and a long intense pure finish with hints of bitter chocolate and spice.

 

Food match

This malbec was made for steak.
