Cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it for an hour before service.

At the origin of the extraordinary wines of Achaval Ferrer are the legendary vineyards, planted even more than a hundred years ago at the foot of the Andes, in the Argentine province of Mendoza. Here the vines have very deep roots and a unique story to tell: they are assets to be preserved as a sort of natural monument. This is why six friends, partly from Argentina and partly from Italy, united by the same passion, have created the Bodega Achaval Ferrer. They work with low yields, minimal interventions in the cellar, and extreme respect for the environment. The resulting wines show rare elegance and complexity, and have obtained various awards.

The grapes come from the best areas of the central-western region of Cuyo. Fermentation takes place in cement tanks at a controlled temperature with extensive pumping over, for better extraction. The wine ages for nine months in French oak barrels, to add body and softness. This young, powerful, and velvety wine is the perfect expression of Mendoza Malbec wine.

The wine is ruby red in color. On the nose, there are fruity notes, accompanied by mineral hints. On the palate, it is soft and fresh, with fruity aromas on the finish. It is the ideal red wine to serve with tapas, cold cuts and aged cheeses, and grilled meats.
