2016 Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec - 92 PTS - Descorchados

descorchados2018 logo"Wines from Vista Flores, in the Tunuyán area, tend to be riper, with less sharpness and minerality than other high elevation zones. We’re not really sure why, we only go by the wines we’ve tasted from there, like this Monteagrelo which, despite the name, comes from viñeyards in Vista Flores. This wine shows good ripeness, flavors of sweet red fruit, but is not as it was a decade ago in Vista Flores. Today, the new generation blends this sweetness with fresh tense acidity that changes the profile, without losing the essence."

2013 Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec - 88 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Bright ruby-red. Wild aromas of blackberry, licorice, black cherry, leather and peppery herbs, along with strong chocolaty oak tones. At once vinous and densely packed, offering good peppery lift but also a strong oakiness to the dark berry and saline flavors. Finishes with serious, oak-driven tannins and good length. - Stephen Tanzer"

2012 Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2012 Malbec Monteagrelo is mostly from Agrelo with around 20% grapes from Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, a ripe red that matured in French oak for 18 months. It revealed ripe aromas of juicy berries and moderate influence from the élevage with some spiciness. The very supple palate shows less influence from the wood and is more fruit-driven with nice fruit and good structure offered by sweet tannins and moderate acidity."
