Paso Doble Tierra Soleada, Masi Tupungato, Argentina 2019
Regular price £13.70
Masi Tupungato is the Argentine outpost of the famous Masi family, best known for being pioneers of the Ripasso style in their native Italy.
The wines fashioned at this estate are a unique fusion between the key Argentine flagship grape varieties of Malbec and Torrontès, alongside the indigenous varietals of their Venetian homeland, namely Corvina and Pinot Grigio.
The marriage of two cultures doesn’t end there, with the winemaking techniques employed also embracing their Italian heritage.
Wines from the Masi Tupungato estate are made with the appassimento technique, which means leaving the grapes to dry out for the winter months, thus concentrating aromas and perfumes. The resulting wines are exuberant and energetic, showcasing perfect balance between native grape varieties and traditional Italian winemaking technique.

Fragrant and complex on the nose with ripe fruits-of-the-forest aromas enhanced by notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Up-front and powerful on the palate with hints of spice and and cooked cherries followed by a long appetising finish.
