The Passo Doble is a nifty combination of double-fermented, appasimento (semi-dried) grapes, processes used to improve extraction, intensify colour, raise alcohol and soften harsh tannins. Immediately upon uncorking, our noses were treated to a powerful, but very pleasant, whiff of blueberries and chocolate. With decanting, these mellowed out into black cherry with spicy oak showing through the fruit. Deep ruby in colour and medium-bodied, it was very sweet on the tip of the tongue, but finished quite dry and with a great aftertaste to boot. Although it was thoroughly enjoyable at the time, this unique Italo-Argentinian has great cellaring potential and some sitting time should help knit everything together and mellow the tannins. The intriguing crafting methods used to produce this little gem have put together a creative, complex wine. Bronze medal winner at the International Wine Challenge in 2005, this one gets a big two thumbs up from us. Relatively inexpensive, unique, and damn tasty.
