Humberto Canale Estate Malbec

2016

In a Nutshell

Rich yet refined this is a hugely popular red!

Tasting Notes

It shows off a very refined style, both in the nose and in the mouth. Its careful oak cask ageing gives the wine an ultimate dimension that turns it into an irresistible one. A full bodied wine, with complex structure and surprising notes of red berries, eucalyptus, spice and black pepper. After a year in the bottle, it becomes more unctuous in character, intense and concentrated.

Production Notes

Cold maceration for 48-72 hours followed by alcoholic fermentation at 25-27 degrees in concrete vats for 20 days with periodical use of the rack-and-return technique. Malolactic fermentation is carried out and then 15-20% of the wine is aged in a combination of American and French oak casks for 7 months. After bottling the wine ages for 6 months before release.
