Finca Agostino Agostino Finca Malbec, MendozaRegular price €25.00
Blended from the grapes of two areas, this is a premium, reserva-grade Malbec, bursting with cherry and blueberry fruit tinged with vanilla and tobacco from ten months' aging in French oak.
The Maipú grapes are from the Barrancas sub-zone, which is a little warmer than its surroundings and yields fruit with darker, softer character. The other 50% of the blend comes from the prestigious high-altitude Uco Valley, which typically gives wines with concentration and refinement in equal measure, and dark, dry undertones.
This is another polished, layered example of just how much wine you get for your money from South America when you trade up a little.
