Fazzio Malbec 2015

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

Tasting 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.

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 or Roast Pork Tenderloin with Medjool Date, Olive and Walnut Relish.
