' Quintessential Wines - L10 Malbec

L10 Malbec 2019


Deep purple color with an attractive magenta hue. Intensity, minerality, and fresh aromas on the nose, where ripe plums, cherries, violets, vanilla, chocolate and some spice stand out. Harmonious on the palate, with balanced acidity and delicate tannins which make for a persistent finish..

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes from L10 Premium come from 3 different terriors. Agrelo, Uco Valley, and three different vineyards in San Rafael: Finca Dona Elsa; Finca Asti and Finca Costanza. The different soils and different micro-climates led to a wine with complex aromas and flavors. The soils have alluvial origin. The grapes were hand-picked. Altitude is a distinctive feature here, resulting in wines with good structure and complexity. Twenty percent of the wine spent 8 months in French Oak. The remaining 80% was left in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 8 months.

Serving Hints
This wine is ideal to serve with a large variety of foods, especially with meats and hard cheeses.

Interesting Facts
This label is a collaboration between Valentin Bianchi and Argentine soccer superstar Leo Messi’s Charity Foundation. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of L10 wines will go to the Foundation, which focuses on health care and educational development of socially-disadvantaged children.
