Valigo 'Temple' Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina 2019
Vaglio is the personal project of José Lovaglio Balbo, son of Argentine wine pioneer Susanna Balbo. He is one of the head winemakers at her winery, Dominio del Plata, in Lujan de Cuyo, but with Vaglio, which he owns and operates independently from his family's winery, José aims to showcase the different microclimates of northern Mendoza through terroir-driven wines. It shows notes of dark black fruit, rose petals, and hints of baking spices and coriander. A classic bottle for the Malbec lover.
Pairing: Chocolate, Open fire-cooked meats and vegetables
