Las Estelas Pinot Noir is made by Estela Perinetti in partnership with Diego Rosso, who farms some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Uco Valley. This is a medium bodied Pinot Noir with delicate red fruit flavours, wild strawberry, bramble, forest floor and earthy spice. It is a delicate, elegant and enchanting wine which is made with great care. There has always been a tendency for South American producers to believe that they need to make Pinot Noir in an oaky, fuller bodied style but this is a refreshing approach that will delight Pinot Noir lovers.

Finca Mangato is a vineyard that was originally planted with Semillon in the early 1940’s by Dr. Hector Perinetti, the son of an Italian immigrant. The Semillon was grubbed up by Estela, Hectors granddaughter in the 1990’s and planted with the red varieties of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. After planting the vineyard, Estela went on to established herself as one of Argentina’s greatest wine makers through her work with Bodegas Catena Zapata and Bodegas CARO. Finca Mangato has always been her baby and she has now returned to the vineyard full time and the Las Estelas wines are the result of her foresight to replant them thirty years ago and her extensive winemaking knowledge.
