Vie Cave Malbec, Fattoria Aldobrandesca, Tuscany, Italy 2020
Regular price £32.00
The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland.
Antinori's Fattoria Aldobrandesca estate is located in the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma, at the heart of what is known as the “Etruscan zone of tufa rock”.
Vie Cave Malbec 2020
Aged for 10 months in French oak and then a further year in bottle before release. Captivating and complex nose – notes of dark ripe fruit, blackberries and blueberries, a spicy hint of vanilla. The palate is balanced and well-defined by silky tannins. Its lengthy, persistent finish is accented with aromas perceived on the nose accompanied by pleasant hints of coffee and dark chocolate.
