Italian wine and grape guide : Malbech


Malbec is a black grape variety native to southwestern France but grown in several Italian regions, from Abruzzo to Friulia Venezia Giulia, from Apulia to Sardinia passing for Sicily, Tuscany and Umbria, in little quantity, even if rarely bottled on its own, mainly used in blends, examples are the red Supertuscans where it is often blended with Sangiovese as well as other international grapes.

The Malbech grape and wine has risen to worldwide fame thanks to Argentina becoming the flagship of Argentinean wines and only in the last few years, until then, it was very little known grape.

We do not stock any wine made with Malbech but we suggest you to try those made with Sangiovese
