Montes Classic Series Malbec originates from our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Deep red with a violet hue, this wine portrays aromas of black and red berries with notes of prunes and crème de cassis. Due to being stored in French oak for 10 months, it also has hints of chocolate, jam and vanilla intertwined with the fruit.
