The son of legendary Argentinean winemaker Susana Balbo, José Lovaglio's Vaglio line of wines are bottled tributes to local terroir. This 2016 Selección Regional Malbec from Valle de Uco and Mendoza carries a nice elegance, with well-woven red and purple berry fruit lifted by a nice clutch of basil and lemon balm. A mere 13% alcohol, it won't bog you down, and it's certainly ripe for summer barbecues. As much as I enjoy the flavour profile, I particularly admire the lightweight packaging: a rarity for a country that prides itself on thick-glassed, ultra-heavy bottles to express a premium profile. Lots of deliciousness at a lower carbon footprint; I'll happily take it.
Here in Vancouver, it's widely available at BC Liquor Stores for 22 bucks; it can be tracked down elsewhere via Wine-Searcher.
