    Diego, Pablo and Mauricio are the Sottano brothers and they’re as hardcore about making great wine as they are the food they match it with.

    We know running a family wine business must come with its sacrifices but pairing this simply delicious Malbec with their local style lamb BBQ is next level! Patagonian lamb. They call it “cordero al palo” – a lamb roasted directly above a wood fire with the carcass stretched over an iron cross.

    When in Rome, right? Or in this case Mendoza in Argentina. Meat and Malbec is what they’re nuts about in this part of the world, and it’s the style of wine that’s lead to the world’s leading wine guru Robert Parker to claim “Malbec will make it big. This French varietal has reached startling heights of quality in Argentina”.

    Awarded 5 Stars from local critic Sam Kim and 89/100 from Master of Wine Bob Campbell. Bob called this latest ’19 release “Dense, luscious though slightly jammy malbec with plum, chocolate/mocha, liquorice, vanilla and an underlying herbal note together with spice and anise. A big and quite complex wine.”
