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, intended as an exclusive family reserve, has been made available by one of the Sottano brothers who chose to secretly release a limited quantity, without telling the rest of the family!

The Judas Malbec is the pinnacle of production at Sottano. The wine spends 24 months in new oak barrels, 70% French and 30% American, and is racked every 4 months.

Deep and dark red colour, with high brightness.

Large structure, correct acidity in a broad palate. Velvety and sweet tannins. Owner of an extraordinary aromatic intensity with a long end, that makes it unique in its style.

Joe’s Judgements

A monster of a Malbec and a real treat, something you have as an occasional splurge (although if you can drink it regularly, I’d like to be your friend!). Intense, but also elegant and classy. Bodega Sottano Judas Malbec enchanting on the nose, with rich and ripe cherries, blueberries, blackberries and spiced plums. Cassis, chocolate and a hint of white pepper. Vanilla and Sweet chocolate from 70% French and 30% American oak, which also serves to integrate excellent tannins into the wine, making things silky and smooth. So.Very.Smooth. Theres a decent whack of alcohol that softens up upon aerating (I’d suggest at least 2 hours), contributing to the full body. Highly rated on vivino – #2 Malbec in the UK right now.

Careful, may become addictive once you have your first sip.
