Bodega Sottano Seleccion del Enologo Malbec 2020
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 wine is made from handpicked, selected parcels of Malbec and spends 18 months in 70% new French oak and 30% American.
Boasting a superb deep violet hue and impressive varietal expression, this Malbec captivates with a harmonious blend of red fruits such as strawberries and black fruits like blackberries. Its aromatic profile extends to include spices, clove, and a hint of white pepper. Exhibiting a solid structure, it unfolds with silky sweetness and ripe tannins seamlessly integrated. This Malbec from Mendoza is a complex, intense, and opulent experience.
Alcohol – 15.5% ABV

Loving this wine at the moment, powerful, composed and elegant with wonderful balance. This is a wine that is made with love, care and attention and it really shows.
Powerful, intense ripe fruit on the nose and palate. Blackcurrant, plum, bramble fruits, red cherries and dried strawberries. The oak comes through prominently in all the right ways, vanilla and cocoa powder with gentle hints of smoke and licorice. A bold and complex palate, with grippy but pretty well-integrated tannins. Medium (+) acidity stops it from feeling too weighty as the alcohol is high at 15.5%. Good solid finish and shows wonderful character.
Bodega Sottano Seleccion de Enologo Malbec performs better pricewise than its brethren, could sell it for 30% more and still feel justified (we won’t though, don’t worry).
