The 2012 Malandrino represents a turning point at Cataldi Madonna. The goal of this shift is a great wine uncontaminated by oak. The production of this Malandrino is centered around the winery’s historic cement tanks, which have been carefully restored. The result is a sharp and crisp Malandrino which initially shows notes of sour cherry that evolved to ripe, black cherry. On the palate, this wine is quite fresh and dangerously easy to drink while retaining its complexity and flavor. A wine for every meal, Malandrino effortlessly pairs with the Abruzzese cuisine.
