Cuento • Malbec

Tasting Notes

It is a captivating wine, intensely red, offering violet reflections and a delicate ripe red fruit aroma, velvety, of sweet tannins and good volume, leaving a pleasant impression in our mouth. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates in the bottle.
