la florencia

This week we’re crushing of the Finca La Florencia Malbec. The Familia Cassone estates sit on a 90 year old vineyards located in Drummond, Lujan de Cuyo, Mandoza. This tasty little beauty is aged 6 months in 2nd and 3rd use French and American oak barrels. We really appreciated its Intense red fruit aromas, with delicate touched of spice and pepper, fresh and herbaceous. On the palate, its soft and ripe tannins let you enjoy a long lasting and substantial finish. We found it here for under ten bucks a bottle.  We recommend drinking it now with no need to for further aging.
