Aniello 006 Malbec 2015
This wine looks and noses very much as you would expect of the Argentine classic - very dark in colour and fairly brooding in aroma, yet with a lifted aromatic quality reminiscent of dried flowers and herbs and, most importantly, gorgeous acidity on the palate.
Bodega Aniello is a small winery that crafts small lot, character-driven wines in the Upper Rio Negro Valley, Patagonia Argentina. The illustration on the label is a work of the Vietnamese artist Thanh Xinh, and represents everything that can be found in this area, and in this particular estate. Proximity and influence of water, vineyards, wild trout and round river stones.
