2013 Viamonte “Finca La Augusta” Malbec $16

Winery History:  “Our story begins in 1973, when Carlos Arturo Celasso planted our first vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon in the district of Maipu – since then, our family has been passionately involved in viticulture, and it has become our way of life.

With 35 years of experience as producers of fine grapes, we started our family project of Bodega Viamonte in 2007. Our objective was to produce first-rate wines that are modern, balanced, easy to drink, and truly reflect our unique vineyards in Vistalba, Lujan de Cuyo – a county known worldwide for its wine quality.

We combine excellent raw material (which comes from our own vineyards), advanced technology and seasoned winemaking experience to produce wines that are a true reflection of our own style – of our family.” – Nico, Andrea, and Martin Celasso

Winery Tasting Notes:  “Aromas of crushed blueberries and red currants meet hints of cedar on this medium-bodied Malbec.  Smooth and juicy, it presents flavors of black cherry, tobacco and plump raspberry, with spicy tannins on a racy finish.”
