Trivento, Amado Sur 2016, Mendoza, Argentina

Tasting Note: A malbec blend with a zippy, ripe-and-tart-fruit character.

Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, kirsch, red cherry, raspberry and violet blossom.

On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied red blend delivers a combination of ripe-and-tart-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and an undercurrent of grippy, slightly stalky, medium-plus tannin.

The red blend would pair well with grilled meats and red meat.

Bottle Note: Malbec fell in love with the South. In Argentina’ Andean foothills, malbec chanced upon a generous terroir where it could attain its tremendous potential. Adding bonarda and syrah, which also express a distinctive character in these lands, Trivento winemaker’s created the complex and elegant “Amado Sur.” 70% Malbec, 20% Bonarda, 10% Syrah.
