In a nutshell:
A concentrated, aromatic and organic Argentinian red made with a bit of Italian influence.
Masi Tupungato are an offshoot of the the well known Amarone specialist Masi in the Veneto. They established this, their sustainably run, organic Argentinan estate, to make wines that combine the best aspects of Argentina's climate and soils with some of the winemaking techniques of the Veneto. Passo Doble is made with 70% Malbec which is re-fermented with 30% Corvina in the Apassimento style and results in a big and powerful wine with ripe cherry and sweet spicy aromas which lead onto a palate of ripe fruits of the forest flavours with notes of prune and liquorice wrapped up with soft tannins and finishing with a lengthy sign off.
When to drink:
A versatile wine with easy appeal, it's great with grilled and roasted red meats
