Our first venture beyond the Iberian Peninsula, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to work with one of South America’s top wineries, to create a couple of sensational Malbec-based blends. This is a particularly interesting blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Franc, from the Uco Valley, Mendoza. We’re proud to welcome such incredible wines to the Anciano family.

DO: Uco Valley, Mendoza – Argentina

Winemaker: Ruben Ruffo

Winery: La Agricola

The grapes are hand-harvested from vineyards which are owned by the winery. There is a period of 5 days maceration at cold temperature of 5°C. Classic fermentation follows with selected yeasts from owned vineyards at 29°C. Maceration for 20 days. Part of the wine (40%) is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.

Red violet color of medium intensity. Complex nose with typical Malbec aromas of red and black fruits such as cherries, plums and jam. It also has notes of dry tomato leaves and spice from the Cabernet Franc. In the mouth, there are dark fruits and firm tannins, making for a fantastic combination resulting in an elegant wine of great concentration.

Fabulous with a steak, but equally a match for slow cooked lamb, game or flavorsome sausages. Try it with grilled aubergine and other rich vegetarian dishes, burritos, chilli con carne and other Mexican meals. A mature farmhouse cheddar would be great too.
