For about $20, with 14.2% alcohol, and scoring an excellent 16+ Dionysian points , the 2019 Bianchi Malbec it’s big and jammy, but still a food wine. It has blackberry, and spice. It is full-bodied and can age a decade or more.

It was served with a grilled steak.

The wine has great potential. Bianchi really knows what to do with Malbec. It’s the oldest family-owned winery in Argentina and they make one of the better Malbecs in South America. Seek one out.
