Malbec is a food friendly wine, which is easy to pair and match with foods. Malbec has softer tannins compared to some of its red counterparts, like Cabernet Sauvignon, which means Malbec goes well with lean cuts of meat like flank, sirloin and skirt steak. Even when you want to change it up a bit, this bold wine pairs perfectly with chicken and other meats like lamb and pork. What a treat for a host, a beautiful wine that is also beautiful on the table.
Why a magnum? The superior quality of wine that has aged in a magnum is because amount of air in a magnum is proportionately less than the amount of air in a standard wine bottle, the wine ages more slowly and more evenly.
