A Malbec Worthy of a Love Affair.
A blend of Malbec from different appellations in Mendoza. Amorio, or 'Love Affair' represents the deep and enduring feelings the Argentine people have toward the Malbec grape.
92pts - The Wine Advocate
Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is some seriously sexy Malbec.
Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb. Also complements dishes prepared with cheese or cream sauces.
