Earthy, smooth, persistent.
Veneto's Masi brings its trade to Argentina, to the high Mendoza vineyards of Tupungato in the Uco Valley. Here, they make this blend of Corvina (classic Italian variety) and Malbec in the appasimento method of drying grapes to add depth and richness to the final wine.
It's a consistently solid wine with a nose of dried cherries, espresso, prune plums, dark chocolate, mint and brown spices. Very good freshness in the mouth with a smooth texture and nicely integrated fruit and mocha flavours. Overall good balance and structure with a long finish.
Pair:Roasted meats, strongly flavoured and mature cheeses or mushroom stuffed ravioli.
