This wine purposely avoids being rated by any of the major publications. Small artisanal producer making tiny quantities of wine. This 100% Malbec is usually found only on restaurant lists, but we were afforded a few sixpacks by the importer. Age-worthy, affordable luxury from the spiritual heart of Mendoza, Valle de Uco. A Staff Pick for 2018. Less than 300 cases made!
Aromas of fleshy crushed plum, roasted coffee, and undertones of anise and violet emerge in this rich and sophisticated Malbec. Round and full in texture, flavours of raspberry ganache envelop notes of toasted hazelnut & tart blackberry, leading to a deep and concentrated finish.
About the winery:
Siete Fincas is a family winery created by Edgardo Stallocca in 2000 to continue the viticultural tradition his grandfather, Juan Stallocca, began in Mendoza in 1904. Siete Fincas honors Edgardo’s childhood, spent in the family bodega and vineyards. From the “siete fincas” or “seven lands” where Juan Stallocca once stood, Edgardo is transforming his family heritage into hand-crafted, premium wines.
