Gen del Alma, Ji Ji Ji Malbec-Pinot Noir 2015, Gualtallary, Uco Valley, Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: Purple in color this red malbec-pinot noir blend has a very European-styled nose.
Made in a light alcohol style for a Mendoza red (12.5%), the wine sees no wood and goes from a concrete ampora to the bottle.
There are black and red fruit aromas on the nose including black plum.
On the palate the wine is soft, supple and light.
Pinot noir provides softness and malbec adds structure and black fruit.
A low-alcohol light red that is relatively straightforward with surprising medium complexity for an unoaked wine.
The grapes in this wine were planted 1,500 feet above sea level.
