L10 Malbec comes from vineyards located in San Rafael, Mendoza, at 750 meters above sea level, on sandy, calcareous soil of alluvial origins. The grapes were hand-picked and classically fermented, including one weeks’ maceration on the skins and periodic pumpover. Fermentation temperatures were controlled, never exceeding 28°C. The wine spends three months in bottle, prior to release.
This wine is ideal to serve with a large variety of foods, especially with meat and hard cheeses.
This label is a collaboration between Valentin Bianchi and Argentine soccer superstar Leo Messi’s Charity Foundation. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of L10 wines will go to the Foundation, which focuses on health care and educational development of socially-disadvantaged children.
