2016 Rutini Encuentro Malbec Tupungato Argentina

$19.99 USD

Winemaker Notes
Deeply concentrated garnet red, with violet glints. Typical Malbec nose also offers floral notes (violet) and spice combined with fresh red and black fruit (cherry cassis). In the mouth, tannins are rounded and rich in hints of bitter cocoa and macerated fruit. intense and complex, with a very crisp acidity that allows an aging potential up to a decade. Food Pairing Smoked cold meats and sausages, grilled meats, roast lamb or stew, coq au vin, vegetable casserole, hunter's rabbit stew, meat pie, stuffed pastas with Bolognese sauce.

A malbec with firm and silky tannins that are dry at the same time emphasizing the dark fruit and hints of fresh herbs. Medium body, bright and delicious.
