Red, with purple highlights, Valentin Bianchi’s Malbec boasts a nose filled with plum jam and figs, combined with vanilla, toasted and spicy, due to the wine’s ageing in oak barrels.Bright, dark red. Musky scents of plum, chocolate and espresso, plus hints of licorice and menthol; strong oaky torrefaction. Smooth but a bit featureless, and more red fruits than black, with an overlay of woodsmoky oak dominating today. Finishes with essentially easygoing tannins and a bit of warmth. The unctuous flavors mimic the aromas, with round, soft and sweet tannins that lead to a fruity and lingering finish. This wine is ideal to serve with a large variety of foods, especially with meat and hard cheeses.
