Marques Cariñoso, Viñas del Marqués Negra Criolla, 2022
(at Peruvian Wines Tasting, 10 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
An unaged red made with Negra Criolla (País in Chile) grapes from a 40-year-old vineyard, this is an excellent example of the pure exotic flavours that can be obtained from patrimonial grapes in Peru. The aromatic profile is fruity with notes of spice, eucalyptus, tobacco and pink pepper. It’s light and expansive in the mouth with firm tannins and a juicy finish.
