New write-ups from the Norwegian web portal Vinhona.com
for Masi’s Passo Doble 2015
, product of the eco-sustainable Masi-owned estate tended in the Mendoza region of Argentina: la proprietà di 140 ettari è costituita da un terreno molto vulcanico, con delle piccole colline, una riserva ricca dal punto di vista delle fauna e della flora autoctone, dove si pratica l’agricoltura biologica.
This organic red wine from Argentina is described by Vinhona as a wine with exciting and inviting aromas of red grapes, cherries, berries, fruit and spices.
Organically produced Passo Doble 2015 has already received the highly desired 5 star award fom the Norwegian Vinforum website together with a description that praises both its production technique and the original flavours of the wine: “Fresh and attractive high altitude wine. Cherry, dark forest fruit, dried fruit. Leathery, with a hint of oak on the nose. Good weight in the mouth, with balancing freshness and with beautiful fruit. Good concentration, with a firm, dry finish
(Malbec/Corvina) is a full-bodied red with unusual aromatic richness which, together with Corbec
(Corvina/Malbec) and Passo Blanco
(Pinot Grigio/Torrontés), forms the range of wines produced by Tenuta Masi Tupungato. Masi has found perfect conditions in this region to host two emblematic grapes from the Veneto - Corvina and Pinot Grigio – and marry them up with traditional local grapes - Malbec and Torrontés – to make wines with the strength and exuberance of Argentina together with the elegance and approachability that are typical of the Veneto. Production methods include typical Masi areas of expertise – such as the Appassimento technique – and are carried out on an estate that has been made completely ecosustainable.
