Milamore 2017

An exciting, innovative wine produced from a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Bonarda and uniquely dried and vinified in the Amarone style. The grapes that produce Milamore are sourced from 50+ years old vines located in three distinct high-altitude vineyards from the Mendoza region in Argentina. The grapes are dried on the vines (appassimento), until they loose 1/3 of their weight. After a prolonged fermentation (both alcoholic and malolactic) the wine is aged in new French barriques for 12 months.

Tasting Notes

Milamore 2016 has a deep and intense red ruby colour with purple shades. Its complex aroma includes violet, honey, fig, cherry and ripe plum which combine with spicy notes of black pepper and aromatic herbs. After a few minutes, the wine shows hints of vanilla and leather provided by the French oak. It’s got a creamy texture with sweet hard tannins. Persistent lengthy finish.

Food Pairing

It’s a wine to enjoy with red meat, foigrass, and chese boards. Also a perfect match for chocolate and cakes with nuts like walnut and hazelnut.
