Our online feature this week is the Sottano Merlot (Mendoza, Argentina) – $14.99 (regularly $20.99).

Bodega Sottano was founded in 2002 by Sottano family. The family history with the wines began at the end of the 19th Century when Don Fioravante Sottano came from Veneto, Italy and he established in Mendoza.

The winery and main vineyard are located in one of the most exclusive regions of Mendoza for producing high quality grapes and wines – Perdriel is a little district inside Luj├ín de Cuyo located 30 km away from Mendoza City. With the majestic Andes Mountains watching their grapes growing daily, their 25 acres of Merlot and Malbec grapes of 30 years old vines prosper.

Our feature this week is their 2017 Merlot, a wine that’s been on our shelves for many years, representing fine value for years – Bright, intense red color. On the nose, it is very elegant and delicate and offers jammy aromas and also red fruits like plums and cherries. Subtle mineral notes are found that are reminiscent of gunpowder and the stones of the vineyard of origin. An excellent assemblage is achieved by the aromas of chocolate, smoke and tobacco. In the mouth, it is intense and complex with a long persistence, sweet and round tannins, and pleasing textures.
