Intense ruby. Still a bit reticent on the nose, but showing considerable potential with ripe red berries, tobacco, violets and marzipan. Ultra-velvety on the palate, with ethereal herbal notes in abundance as well as luxuriantly ripe cherries and forward tannins. Fresh and elegant.

Nicasia is a specific Malbec vineyard site situated in the Uco Valley in Mendoza. Its soils are sandy with an abundance of calcareous elements. There were six different rounds of picking, which took individual ripeness levels into account. The wine was fermented in oak barrels, with a five percent addition of Cabernet Franc.
