Banda de Los Tres Sucios El Contrabandista Petit Verdot 2016
A limited one-off parcel from Vicentin, this Petit Verdot is full of flavour!
This is a great example of Petit Verdot with intense ripe blackberry fruit and a mineral edge. The wine is elegantly rich and powerful, with good tannic structure and acidity to balance. The finish is long with a streak of cassis and hint of oak.
The Vicentin Winery is a family owned company with a strong history in olive oil, cotton and meat. The vines are grown in sandy-loam soils in the province of Barrancas in Mendoza. The Banda de los tres sucios range is a one off parcel of wines which were initially the 'ugly ducklings', put to one side, to the eststes main lables. But which over tim in oak flourished to become something special.
