2013 TintoNegro Limestone Block Malbec


Mendoza, Argentina

The 2013 Limestone Block Malbec is sourced from the south of the Uco Valley, in San Carlos and Altamira, selected from places where there’s a higher content of chalk, usually in the stonier soils. It is co-fermented with a small quantity of cabernet franc (7-8%). The wine feels serious and well-balanced, with notes of ripe red and black fruits, a fresh herbal note, a mineral feeling and a medium-bodied palate with fine-grained tannins and good balance. Great ageing potential! Drink now-2020.
