' Quintessential - Gran Famiglia Bianchi Malbec

Gran Famiglia Bianchi Malbec 2019


Intense and deep color with violet flashes. On the nose, intense aromas of cherries, fresh plums, spice, floral notes, and hints of vanilla and dark chocolate acquired during its aging of 10 months in French Oak. On the palate, it is initially sweet, fleshy, and with very good structure. Balanced acidity, with round and sweet tannins. Excellent now – and with great aging potential.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Gran Famiglia Bianchi was created as a tribute to the 90th anniversary of the winery. The vineyards are located in Vista Flores, in the renowned Los Chacayes area (Uco Valley), in the province of Mendoza, at an altitude of 3,600 feet above sea level. In addition to the outstanding quality of its soil of alluvial origin, this location offers a unique temperature range that produces wines of excellent color and exceptional organoleptic properties. The grapes were hand-picked. Fermentation was completed at controlled temperatures (peaking at 30° C and then maintained down at 27° C). 50% of the wine then spent ten months in French Oak barrels. The remaining 0% of the wine was left in stainless- steel tanks at controlled temperatures for 10 months. After bottling, the wine was aged an additional six months before release.
