Fattoria Aldobrandesca Vie Cave Malbec 2016

Antinori's Fattoria Aldobrandesca estate is located in the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma, at the heart of what is known as the “Etruscan zone of tufa rock”. This wine is dedicated to the “vie cave”, or “hollow roads”, Etruscan roadways which deeply crisscross the township of Sovana and reveal ancient travel routes. The Vie Cave Malbec was created after careful geological and oenological research highlighted the great potential this grape variety has to offer in the unique Maremma terroir.

Aged for 10 months in French oak and then a further year in bottle before release, the Vie Cave Malbec is intense ruby red in colour. The nose is complex with notes of ripe red fruits, spices, clove and vanilla. The wine, is balanced and supple on the palate, persistent and with a finish and aftertaste dominated first by blueberries and red fruit, which then merge with hints of dark chocolate.
