A really gutsy Malbec from Gustavo Caligiore in Lujan de Cujo, Mendoza.  A real favourite for ours and goes perfectly with steak.  A wine of real character with a deep, purply red colour and gorgeously dark fruited nose. In the mouth it's rich and fruity, supported by gentle tannins and there's reassuring sweetness on the finish. Me gusto mucho!

    Background Information
    In 1969 the Caligiore family bought Finca la Marolina vineyard in Mendoza’s Lujan de Cuyo region, close to the foothills of the Andes and in sight of its snowy peaks. Malbec had been planted there since 1930 and for some years the grapes were sold to local wineries until 3rd generation Gustavo took control in 2011, establishing his own winery 2 years later.
