Bodegas Sottano stands as a flawless family-owned estate nestled in the Pedriel district of Mendoza, overseen by the Sottano brothers—Diego, Pablo, and Mauricio. Positioned at an elevation of 1000 meters in the Andes foothills, the vineyard enjoys the climatic advantages of warm days and cold nights, characteristic of the region. This unique environment fosters the cultivation of grapes that achieve a harmonious balance and optimal ripeness. The resulting wines from this estate boast a richness and smoothness, yet they retain a distinctive elegance and equilibrium not always found in New World wines.

This introductory Malbec from the estate is truly delightful. It boasts ripe fruit flavors without the overwhelming jamminess, featuring abundant notes of black cherry and plum, redcurrants and strawberries accompanied by a subtle hint of spice. The palate is approachable, showcasing generous fruitiness, refined tannins, and a velvety texture. It’s effortlessly drinkable yet remarkably satisfying, making it a perfect companion for BBQ or steak.

Joe’s Judgements

Bodega Sottano Junior Malbec is a fantastic example of an unoaked Malbec, ripe jammy fruits like redcurrants, strawberries and plums leap out of the glass, while still seeming bright and vivacious. A little baking spice rounds off the flavours (cinnamon/nutmeg). A good streak of acidity and soft elegant tannins make this a really good quaffer. Malbec classically goes with steaks and BBQ. but this is soft enough that you can have it with soft, pungent cheeses and spicy enough to go with Chilli con carne (vegetarian as well, its all about the spice and acidity of the wine).
