A red wine with unusually high aromatic content made on the organically run Masi Tupungato estate at Mendoza, in Argentina. Modern wine with non conformist style, striking for its intense fruitiness and delicate spiciness. Its strong and exuberant character comes from the local Malbec grape, while the addition of lightly dried Corvina Veronese gives it the easy appeal and attractiveness of Venetian wines.
Ripe cherries and sweet spices with a rich and intense cherry and fruits-of-the-forest flavours; good length and soft tannins.
One of the most original winemaking projects of recent years, Masi Tupungato is a fusion of Venetian technique and Argentine terroir. Passo Blanco sets the scene with its blend of grape varieties, but Passo Doble goes a step further: two-thirds Malbec is re-fermented with lightly-dried Corvina, enhancing depth and savouriness while maintaining balancing acidity. Full of spicy fruit, with great body and length, this experiment has been a sure-fire success!
