1) Luigi Bosca Ícono 2011
Aged wine which is on its ideal point. The evolution is perceived by its brick color. Explosive and complex shows an immense aromatic palette where, among other things, raisins, wood and spices stand out. Silky and kind, owner of a vibrant acidity that augurs it even more years of life. Absolutely Delicious!
2) De Angeles Gran Corte 2013
Mature garnet color. Intense, deep, complex nose. Silky and delicate, but still fresh. Structured with velvety tannins. Long persistence with an interesting range of flavors. Sensational, it’s ready to drink now.
3) Vero Malbec 2015
Clean ruby red. Captivating and refined nose, full of spices, black fruit and subtle oak. Elegant, seamless texture. Ripe and polished tannins. It displays a superb acidity that adds tension. Fruits and flowers again. Long persistence and velvety finish. Stunning!
4) D.V Catena Vineyard Designated La Pirámide Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Crafted with grapes from the vineyards that surround their iconic winery, this is a very complex wine, with fruity and spicy notes. It has a subtle and elegant mouthfeel, yet powerful and dense. It is enveloped by multiple layers.
5) Weinert Tonel Único 111 Malbec 1994
Well known by its Bordeaux style, Weinert has crafted this awesome Malbec back in 1994 and oak-aged it for 24 years. Yes, you read well. Typical fruit from Malbec, well structured in the palate, subtle evolution appears among its aroma palate, but it retains a freshness that surprises and gives a perfect balance to this jewel.
6) Colomé 1831 Malbec 2016
This wine is a commemoration of the winery foundation back in 1831. Dried fruit, flowers and spicy. In the palette, it is concentrated, with present tannins, good volume and persistent yet subtle finish.
If you need a gentle slap in the face by those who help you survive a tough day, here you have a muscle red wine from Salta. Tacuil winery is a synonym of the old school: concentration, structure, dried and ripe aromas. An extraordinary cabernet sauvignon from Molinos, at 2,630 meters high.
8) Aguayo Malbec 2017
A collaboration between Agustin Lanus and the award-winning Chilean winemaker Stefano Gandolfini, Aguayo was the first iconic wine made in Hualfin, Catamarca province, which is a classic full-bodied wine from vineyards over 2,100 msnm. “An old-world style wine with a long finish in the mouth, Aguayo evokes a sense of dried cherries and black currants, with rose mosqueta floral notes and a soft mint finish”, Agustín says about it.
