Seleccion del Enologo Malbec, Sottano, Mendoza, Argentina – 2018
Sottano wines are made high up in the Mendoza plateau with the winery’s Italian roots celebrated at every step. Founded four generations ago, they are superb at what they do – taking the grapes of the region and making fine wine out of them. They aim for a mid-point between brash and bold US styles and the more restrained and refined European intellectualism – and achieve it.
A deep red with attractive purple and crimson hues in the glass. On the nose, we encounter notes of red fruits such as raspberries and strawberries as well as black fruits and spices such as pepper. Its attractive finale and body is given by its good structure and vibrant tannins – this delicious malbec benefits from long decanting!
