The 2016 Montes Classic Malbec from the Colchagua Valley in Chile displays an intense ruby red color with a violet hue. Ripe red and black fruits are accompanied by sweet spices, vanilla, mocha, and an elegant floral note. Rich acidity balances this excellent wine with medium body and rounded tannins that deliver a persistent finish and a very pleasing palate. Highly recommended with spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, cheeses, steak with French fries, and rice dishes with strong sauces.
Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec
