Vina Amalia RESERVA Malbec, Argentina (2013) (IN-STORE WINE PICKUP with ID)
Orginally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine since 1922 and in Argentina since 1935. Carlos Basso has been a true pioneer in Uco and is one of the great 'gentleman farmers' of the region. Since 1996, Basso's focus has been on on Vina Amalia, the iconic estate in Carrodilla, Uco Valley. The style is fresh and aromatic, with Uco's floral notes and black fruit showcased. The value is remarkable considering the impeccable sourcing and boutique scale of production.
Notes: Deep red color with violet tones. Fine red fruit aromas that blend delicately with oak. On the palate, it is fresh and well balanced with medium tannins. Flavors of plums, vanilla and tobacco appear from eight months of aging in oak barrels.
