Wine tasting notes

Malbec of deep and intense red-violet color, with aromas of red fruits, plums, black cherries and forest berries such as blackberries and blueberries. Fresh and full as it enters the mouth, with sweet, juicy and ample tannins and a very elegant finish.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011)93 pts

April 2014. Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - The impressive 2011 Terroir Series Malbec Finca Coletto is sourced from a vineyard in El Peral in Tupungato. It possesses perfectly integrated wood, showy aromatics, and plenty of flowers, blue fruit and juicy, tasty, cherry notes in a round and hedonistic style. Impressive.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2011)92+ pts

Saturated bright ruby. Brisk, fruit-driven aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, violet, black plum and bitter chocolate. Plush, concentrated and deep, with a chocolately sweetness making the wine more approachable today than the Finca Ambrosia bottling. Lovely dense, pliant texture to the dark fruit flavors. Attractive spice notes give this wine a hedonistic appeal. Substantial tannins are sweet and harmonious. -- Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectator (2011)89 pts

Peppery notes add to the dried berry and red currant flavors, with plenty of cedary accents as well. Firm finish with roast plum elements.

James Suckling (2011)93 pts

A malbec with loads of dark berry and spice character. Hints of fresh herbs too. Full body, focused fruit and a long and beautiful finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast (2011)93 pts

Editor's Choice - Blackberry and cassis aromas are so subtle, balanced and clean that they barely register while luring you in. An elastic, wide palate has firm, slightly abrasive tannins that should mellow with more time in the bottle, while blackberry, chocolate and spice flavors finish long and smooth, with a hint of raisin. Drink from 2016 through 2021.

Tim Atkin (2011)95 pts

Made with grapes from a vineyard at 1,200 metres, planted in 1945 on sandy, silty soils, this is showing delightful perfume and balance in 2012. Fine-grained tannins, succulent red fruits, bright acidity and stylish oak all make a contribution to this appropriately feminine wine from the Coletto sisters. 2016-24

Vinification Notes

Vineyard - El Peral, Tupungato, 1127 metres. Yields are a low 2,600 kg per hectare, furrow irrigation is used and the vines have been planted on their own rootstocks. Vineyard soils are alluvial and sandy, with many pebbles. Grapes are hand harvested into 20 kg. plastic cases, and bunches are selected before de-stemming. There’s a strict berry selection before fermentation and maceration in small concrete vats, for a minimum of 23 days, at 23-25ºC. Natural malolactic fermentation precedes aging for 18 months in new French oak barrels.
