The Malbec wine grapes for this full-bodied Gran Reserva red wine were sourced from the Altamira vineyard and matured for one year in French and American oak barrels. Cicchitti 2012 is smoky with dark chocolate and savoury spice aromas, dry and full-bodied with dark fruit, crushed blackberry, dark chocolate, savoury spice and smoky flavours on the palate.

Malbec food pairings: pizza, lamb, spicy sausage, beef, meatloaf.

Cicchitti 2012 is a full-bodied Malbec Gran Reserva from the Mendoza Wine Region. The grapes for this full-bodied red wine came from the Altamira vineyard and it is matured for one year in French and American oak barrels. The nose is smoky with dark chocolate and savoury spice aromas. On the palate, the Malbec is dry with dark fruit, crushed blackberry, dark chocolate, savoury spice and smoky flavours on the palate. Truly a different kind of Malbec, very quaffable and full on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
