Drinking Window: 2018 - 2022
Argentina's Michelini brothers are familiar faces to Decanter readers, as are their terroir-driven wines. The Eggo range – not surprisingly, wines fermented and matured in concrete eggs – features Blanc de Cal (Sauvignon Blanc), Filoso (Pinot Noir), Franco (Cabernet Franc), Tinto de Tiza (Malbec) and this Napoleonic Bonarda. It's fresh, juicy and sappy, with fine tannins, a plush red berry fruit profile and floral highlights. A midweek winner.
