Leticia Malbec del Valle is a magnificent expression of Malbec made by Estela Perinetti at her family vineyard – Finca Mangato. It is everything you’d want from a Malbec with big, soft, rich, dark fruit, black cherry, plum and blackberry all perfectly balanced with dark coffee and chocolate oak notes. 30% of the wine is aged in 2nd use French oak barrels which gives lovely oak notes but lets the pure fruit be the star of the show. There is also a wee cheeky 8% Syrah in here which adds a lovely freshness to the wine.

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.
