Fazzio Malbec 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

‘Never slow down’ and dance in Tupungato with Domingo Fazzio with his Malbec full of supple tannins, red currant, and mocha notes.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful red and purple color. The vibrant nose is of red and black cherries and ripe plums that combine 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.

Food Pairing

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 with Almonds and Drunken Goat Cheese, Roast Pork Tenderloin with Medjool Date, Olive and Walnut Relish, or Slow-Roasted Salmon with Blood Oranges and Fennel.
