Mendoza is responsible for producing over 70% of Argentina’s wine and is by far the largest and best-known winemaking region in the country. For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec.
TintoNegro, meaning black wine in Spanish, is meant to celebrate the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish color Malbec is definitely a TintoNegro.
Tasting & Pairing Notes
Sourced from Mendoza’s Primera Zona of Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo, this Mendoza blend is meant to showcase the exceptional value and approachable profile of Malbec.
It’s a rich and textured Malbec, with the dark juiciness of a handful of blackberries. Pair with a charcuterie plate rounded out with aged cheeses, and berries. Of course pairing it with red meat is also highly recommended in Argentina:
