CATENA CATENA - Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec - 2014

CATENA Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec 2014

See the wine detail page

93 Points

Showing the freshness and minerality that’s often a feature of Altamira wines, this is the finest and most focused of the Catena appellation Malbecs. Sappy and tangy, with sculpted tannins and scented plum, damson and blackberry fruit underpinned by a chalky bite.
