Famiglia Bianchi Malbec

This 2014 Malbec comes from two vineyards – the Doña Elsa Estate, situated in Ram Caída, San Rafael, Mendoza at 750 meters above sea level, and Finca Constanza Stradella Bianchi, located in the Cuoto Benegas District, both in San Rafael province. Rama Caída is among the coolest areas of San Rafael, with sandy calcareous soil of alluvial origins. The grapes were hand-picked and classically fermented, with periodic pump-over and three weeks’ maturation on skins. Fermentation was completed at controlled temperatures not exceeding 82°F (28°C). The wine then spent ten months in new oak – 80% French and 20 percent American. After bottling, the wine was aged an additional five months.
