Winery Notes:
Grape Varieties:
80% Malbec / 12% Bonarda / 8% Petit Verdot

This blend presents a violet red color with shades of purple. At first the classic floral aromas of Malbec fill the nose, to be latter enhanced by notes of red fruits, such as strawberries, typical of the Bonarda variety. On the palate, it has the trademark Malbec silkiness, buoyed by the structure and depth of Petit Verdot. This wine achieves a unique combination where Bonarda and Petit Verdot add freshness and structure to a foundation composed of our renowned and beloved Malbec. A unique wine with a persistent and long finish.
