Reviews and Ratings

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Displays an intense and deep ruby red color, with traces of violet, A very aromatic nose presents the variety typical plum aromas, combined with smoke and chocolate notes, a result of the oak and bottle ageing. On the palate rich and sensual, well structured and perfectly balanced.

The 2011 vintage of Graffigna is quaffable and robust. Black fruit and oak on this Argentine red wine. - Community Wine Reviews
