The Salentein Primus by Bodegas Salentein is a varietal Mendoza Malbec, with deep ruby red, violet reflections and a nearly black core in the glass. The bouquet of this Argentine red wine is reminiscent of dark fruits such as blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and elderberries. It is complemented by fine nuances of the barrel maturity, which remind of wintry spices such as cinnamon, vanilla and clove.
If the Salentein Primus Malbec finally reaches the palate, it delights with great fullness, soft but wonderfully present tannins and fresh, vital fruit acidity. An excellent structured wine with outstanding length and balance.

Food recommendation for the Primus Malbec by Bodegas Salentein
