Piattelli Malbec 2009 Premium wine review by Billy
Palate: nice balance of plum fruit and earthy tannins. Good structure means this Argentinian Malbec is firm but not overpowering.
Finish: lingering cherry at the back of the mouth finishes nicely.
Overall: A friend brought this bottle over for us to share and it was a delightful gift. The 100%Malbec from Argentina was made by Italians and the careful crafting shows. This red wine from 2009 shows character and grace with big fruit flavors and earthy sophistication.
