‘Never slow down’ and dance in Tupungato with Domingo Fazzio with his Malbec full of supple tannins, red currant, and mocha notes.
The vibrant nose of red and black cherries and ripe plums combines with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex.
This is a fruit-driven, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs great with meats like prosciutto or hard cheeses. Unique recipe ideas include Smoked Chicken and Blueberry Salad or Roast Pork Tenderloin with Medjool Date, Olive and Walnut Relish.
This has such interesting, sweet and fragrant, violet-like florals with rich purple fruit and a faint, stony edge. The palate is very plush and rich and the velvety tannins carry so long and even. Black-cherry and cocoa-powder finish. A more serious vintage for this wine. Drink or hold.James Suckling February 2020
The old-school label conjures up an Italian bottling from the 1950s; the wine, however, is firmly modern, gravelly and extracted in its blackberry fruit, polished with smoky oak. This is a generous red, with enough acidity to match it to a sausage pizza.Wine & Spirits October 2020
A Malbec from Tupungato, 50% aged in used barrels. The fragrant nose offers notes of plum and red currant at first, followed by secondary aromas of wood and herbs. Fleshy on the palate, it flows well, delivering a terse texture, well-defined flavors and a pleasant final perfume.Vinous October 2020
