Malbec fell in love with the South.
In Argentina's Andean foothills, Malbec chanced upon a generous terroir where it could attain its tremendous potential. Adding Bonarda and Syrah, which also express a distinctive character in these lands, Trivento winemakers created the complex and elegant Amado Sur.
In the 8 years since we started Reverse Wine Snob, we've reviewed a lot of wine! Since wines obviously change vintage to vintage, we've been making a concerted effort as of late to go back and re-review some of our favorites from over the years. And just as we found with yesterday's Napa Cab from Robert Mondavi, this gem from Trivento also stands the test of time.
The 2016 Trivento Amado Sur Malbec Blend begins with an aromatic and enticing nose that grabs you as you pour the first glass. The primary aromas include red and black berries, baking spice, licorice and even a hint of balsamic and chocolate. Tasting the medium-bodied wine reveals lots of rich, juicy, luscious, delicious fruit. It also has a really wonderful mouthfeel with good acidity and nice layers of peppery spice. It ends with a long, fruit-filled finish with dry, grippy tannins. An excellent choice!
