    Winemaker's Notes:

    This vineyard was founded in 1939 by Victorio Coletto. When he planted his vineyard, Victorio was a pioneer in one of Mendoza's most prized areas: El Peral. Now 83, Victorio has been selling fruit to Trapiche for many years, and his grapes have always been prized for their sweetness and high quality. When asked why he decided to plant Malbec, Don Victorio answered simply, "Because I like red wine!"

    At 1130 meters elevation, the vineyard has vines that average 50 years old growing in soils that are alluvial, loamy clay, about 1.5 meters deep. The fruit is hand harvested into 20 kg. plastic bins for protection during transport to the winery. There's bunch selection and destemming prior to a rigorous berry selection. Fermentation and maceration occurs in small concrete vats for a minimum of 25 days at 23-25°C. Natural malolactic fermentation precedes 18 months of aging in new French oak barrels.

    "Garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Lush blueberry aromas with uplifting accents of caramel, coconut and maple. Layers of blueberry and ripe plum flavors with well-integrated tannins and acids. Lengthy finish with a tasty mix of sweet oak, smoky fruit and minerals."

    We enjoyed a bottle of this fantastic Malbec at Taranta's in Boston and It is a full flavor powerful wine with layers of chocalte and fruit it is very deep with layers and layers and finishes smooth and lasting...It was great with a sugar brine double chop and did well with a southern Italian antipasto..this wine was unique in that it changed as it opened and introduced new dflavors along the way ..a fantastic wine I cant wait to gewt in my cellar
