Limestone Block

Tinto Negro translates to black wine in Spanish, and is meant to represent the spirit of Malbec in Mendoza. Malbec has a wonderful affinity for co-fermentation – vinifying with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot lends additional intensity and structure. Cabernet Franc adds complexity to Malbec’s floral character while Petit Verdot lends finely grained tannins. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak, 30% new.
