Durigutti Classico Malbec 2006

  • Area: Argentina, Malbec
  • Grape: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Rating: Black 93, Dilettante 93, Nwjr 93
Description: The color is inky purple/black. The unusual nose is made up of dark fruit, olive and aged cheese. This wine has powerful and chewey flavors of exotic dark berries, tobacco, black olive, raisin and green peppers. The finish is slightly jammy and softly tannic with great balance and no heat. Mmmmm, tasty and unique. Decanting not required although a bit of air time develops this one nicely.

Price: $11

Note: There was quite a bit of sediment on the bottom. Pour carefully or filter it.
