ADRIANNA VINEYARD RIVER STONES MALBEC
This wine is named after a small parcel covered by white oval stones, which belonged to the bed of an ancient river. The abundance of stones facilitates optimal drainage and adaptation to extreme temperatures. The stones retain the heat of the day, radiating it during the night, moderating the cold at night. At the same time, on extremely cold nights, they work like ice cubes, moderating the daytime heat. Malbecs from calcareous soils are extraordinarily aromatic, concentrated and opulent. This wine can be drunk young or after several decades.
