The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of white peach flavors and, spiced baked pear, a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part new and part Old World. Pairs well with most fish, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations.

A new Malbec that tells the story of Laura's family with elements from the many cultures that have played a role in what Luca is today. A dense, serious, characterful Malbec. Full-bodied and grainy in terms of tannin texture and well-defined by the driven acidity. There is a very intense pressed violet character and blueberry essence. Rich, dense and inky.
With Luca, Laura pioneered grower relations in Mendoza and discovered many small old vine Malbec vineyards that were previously going into bulk wine. This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. incredible deep purple red color. Loads of spice and black and red cherry aromas with notes of chocolate. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both a full mid palate and lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouthwatering too.
