Cultivated with arid-clean air at 3,200 ft elevation which minimizes common viticultural challenges, crystal-clear water from the Andes, and nutrient-rich soil, Piattelli’s Malbec grapes thrive in the warm, dry days and cool nights which maximize the color and tannins. In this stately bottle, some of the best grapes in the region become one of the best wines in the world.

  • Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed
  • Grapes underwent 5 days of cold maceration
  • Fermented in 5,000 to 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks
     
Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A rich and fragrant wine with a deep purple hue, Grand Reserve Malbec envelops the senses with an exquisite bouquet of sweet and spicy plum, blossoms in the glass to reveal notes of tea leaves and cassis, lingers on the palate with a moderate tannin pull, and finishes with understated-yet-resonant oak.
