Deep red colour with some hint of violet. Full ripened fruit aromas with strong plum and cassis gently backed with floral and spiced nuances. Delicate hints of vanilla and chocolate, a soft and elegant wine with a long lingering finish.
88 Points Wine Enthusiast. “Dark, piercing, crusty black fruit aromas suggest burnt toast and lemon, and although there’s a lemony bite to the palate, once it airs out chunky black fruit flavors take over. Not a thriller but it’s pure and clean. Textbook mid-to-upper-level Malbec with some flair. M.S.” (8/1/2010)
Wine Enthusiast. “Aresti Winery is a family-owned winery that was founded in 1951 by Vicente Aresti and his father-in-law Alfredo López. Originally known as Bellavista Estate, Aresti believed that the Curico Valley was the ideal place for his vineyards. Over the years the family purchased new land throughout Chile to plant their Aresti Vineyards. By 1999, the brand name and label had switched over to Aresti and a state of the art cellar and bottling plant was constructed. The new winery also included an underground, climate controlled barrel room to house up to 2,000 barrels according to our Aresti wine reviews. Aresti wines are available in 5 different lines from their value Estate Selection to their top tier Family Collection red blend. Nine different grape varieties are used to produce the various wines in the Aresti portfolio, however it is their Limited Release and Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere blends that tend to find the top of our Aresti wine ratings.”
– This wine has the typical deep, dark violet colour of Argentine Malbec. The nose offers intense aromas of black stone fruit interwoven with notes of chocolate and sweet spice. Balanced acidity leads into a long, velvety finish.
