The elegant Tributo Malbec Colchagua Valley from Caliterra comes into the glass with bright crimson. This Caliterra red wine reveals to the nose all kinds of blackcurrants, blackberries, blueberries, lavender and mulberries. As if this were not already impressive, add oriental spices, black tea and cinnamon due to the ageing in a small wooden barrel.
This dry red wine from Caliterra is just right for wine lovers who prefer 0.0 grams of residual sugar in the wine.

On the tongue, this balanced red wine is characterized by an incredibly silky and dense texture. Due to its vital fruit acid, the Tributo Malbec Colchagua Valley presents itself exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate. The finale of this red wine from the Valle Central wine-growing region finally inspires with remarkable reverberation.
