“The 2020 Malbec Tintonegro Mendoza is a combination of grapes from Luján de Cuyo and Maipú and was aged for six months in used oak. A dark, purplish red in the glass. The moderate nose offers dark and red fruit with ripe plum and a little pepper. Relaxed on the palate with gentle tannins, it has a broad, terse feel with an unusually vibrant freshness for the region. A simple, rewarding wine.” (Touring Mendoza with Joaquin Hidalgo)
