Tintonegro Malbec Uco Valley 2012


Tintonegro Malbec 2012

Very affordable wine from Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina. Let’s see how it goes.

Colour: Medium+ purple core

Nose: Clean nose, liquorice, very fruit forward, blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, and a touch of oak.

Palate: Dry, medium-body, medium+ acidity, medium+ soft tannins, ripe dark fruits, plums, well integrated oak.

Finish: Medium finish, plums, oak.

Score: 78/100

Very good malbec, not overly ripe, decent complexity, paired with canjun chicken after the review, solid buy for $18CAD.

NOTE: I score tighter than the average, and price isn’t part of the consideration.
