"This has a very dense and chalky character with crushed stones and cherry flavors. Medium-bodied, silky and long on the finish. Tight and bright. Drink now. "

"Alejandro Sejanovich selects the grapes for this wine in Chacayes, in the rocky limestone soils of the Uco Valley. This is fruity, with light details of spice. The flavors are red, ripe raspberries and cherries, while the texture feels firm and tense, with a chalky sensation in the middle. The fruit flavors project to the end, leaving a sense of freshness."

TINTONEGRO wines are meant to reflect the heart and soul of Malbec in Mendoza. The portfolio explores the terroirs of Mendoza where Malbec does best, gradually isolating unique vineyard sites and winemaking techniques which can showcase the heights of concentration and complexity to which Malbec can aspire." - Winery
