L10 Malbec 2019
TEMPERARILY OUT OF STOCK
**Available in 6 pack case
Leo Malbec is violet red in color. Aromas of plum and black cherries stand out, with subtle smokiness behind the fruit. The freshness and vigorous aromas attest to the wine’s Argentine pedigree, with sweet tannins and a silky mouthfeel bolstered by great structure. There is roundness and harmony, all the way through the pleasant finish. You’ll score big points with this wine.
L10 Malbec comes from vineyards located in San Rafael, Mendoza, at 820.21 yards above sea level, on loamy-sandy, calcareous soil of alluvial origins. The grapes were hand-picked and immediately destemmed. The berries are placed directly into stainless steel tanks. The cold maceration process begins there at 46.4° F and it lasts 2-3 days. Color and tannin are extracted by means of closed pump-overs. Four days later, selected yeasts are introduced in order to begin the fermentation process – and the temperature should be constant, between 78.8° F – 84.2° F. The wine spends three months in bottle, prior to release.
This wine is ideal to serve with a large variety of foods, especially with meats and hard cheeses.
This label is a collaboration between Valentin Bianchi and Argentine soccer superstar Leo Messi’s Charity Foundation. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of L10 wines will go to the Foundation, which focuses on health care and educational development of socially-disadvantaged children.
