Choosing the only the ripest fruit from across their Mendoza vineyards, this is the best of Sottano's varietal wines. Aged 8 months in 2 to 3 year old oak barrels (principally French) and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is true Cabernet of the old school.
Richly layered notes of blackcurrant, black cherry, tobacco and cedar on the nose, with big juicy berries, cinnamon, vanilla and a herbal edge on the palate. This is textbook Cab, the green notes, the soft dark fruit and the beautifully integrated oak all vying for attention on a luscious and refined palate. Cracking!
SC RATING - EXCELLENT ++ (Tom)
