Country: Argentina Region: Mendoza
Vintage: 2012 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Colonia Las Libres
Something different from Argentina. A classic Italian grape which has found a new home in Argentina in the hands of one of it's top winemakers - Alberto Antonini. Produced in limited quantities from handpicked grapes. Lots of upfront fruit, mellow tannins and a lingering finish.
Deep garnet coloured wine with a prounced developed nose of ripe blackberry fruits with sweet spice and vanilla hints. Dry with balanced acidity - lovely weight of summer berry fruits, blackberry and damson with excellent length and balance. Drinking very well now but will last another year or two.
