“95 pt Malbec Masterpiece!”

2018: A World-Class Vintage for Argentine Malbecs

By David Gettenberg

This magnificent Malbec needs to be among your go-to reds this summer

Malbec, in general, is a versatile red. Often used as a blending grape (especially in Bordeaux), it is a fabulous stand alone varietal.

2018 Argentina has produced some great Malbecs, like the 2018 Vaglio Aggie.  They are "quaffable, refined, structured and complex." James Suckling

At 3,800 feet in the Uco Valley, Vaglio's Aggie shows tremendous complexity. 

"Wonderful intensity of crushed berries, pink pepper and volcanic salt. Full-bodied, yet fresh and vivid with energy and focus.  Extremely long and flavorful. Drink or hold."  James Suckling

The craftsman behind this artisanal Malbec is José Lovaglio Balbo, son of acclaimed Argentinian winemaker Susanna Balbo.  His "Aggie" takes Malbec to a whole new level.

Rich, layered, and full of flavor, the wine retains its freshness and structure.  It is a perfect wine for barbecue cuisine of any kind.  

In the mood for a wedge of cheese and/or feet on the ottoman?  

Here you go!

Did somebody say burgers?!  Buy by the case and grill!!!!!

While supplies last; only 88 cases were imported to the east coast.  

Enjoy!
