In 1890, italian Mr Fioravante Sottano arrived in Argentina. He established himself in the Mendoza region as a producer and exporter of wine, specifically in the Lujan de Cuyo. HIs great grandsons took over around 2000, the winery has subsequently been purchased by the Vincentin family, who wish to protect the quality associated with the Sottano wines.
As well as Lujan de Cuyo, they also have vines in Perdriel and the Uco Valley. All their vines are planted at around 1000m altitude, so the fruit gets ripe in the daytime, then it rests at night when the temperatures drop. This results in fresh, elegant, fruit driven wines.
We have their Malbec wines, both everyday, all the way up to their flagship wine, the Judas Malbec. We also really enjoy their Cabernet Sauvignons. This is from their Seleccion del Enologo range of wines. It's made from different parcels of vines, which are aged in oak for 18 months. It has pure berry fruit flavours, with cocoa and spice notes from the oak. It's mellow and velvety with a good finish.
