CarinaE Reserva Malbec 2009
The intense colour, concentration and volume of this wine are enhanced by the perfect maturity of the grape. Its aromas are associated with plums and red fruit, typical of this variety; and a touch of vanilla and roundness contributed by the French oak.
It is recommended to decant it and to be served at 17/19° C accompanied by meats, pasta and mature cheeses.
