More about this wine from Ugarteche - Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Familia Blanco is the eponymous family-owned winery located in Mendoza, in the sub-zone Luján de Cuyo — the region that first showed Malbec’s promise and home to some of the most famous Argentine winemakers. For three generations, the Blancos have worked the land to grow fruit and select the best grapes to make a Malbec that has a fuller body and rich complexity. And in this Reserve red blend, the winemakers carefully conceived of this trifecta of grapes, mostly Malbec and a smidge of Cabernet Sauvignon highlighting its red fruit — plus a shake of Bonarda, adding a few manners to these two strong personalities — to create an intense yet intriguingly elegant wine.
