Piattelli Vineyards recently participated in a great tasting event in the coast city of Mar del Plata, Argentina. More than 100 people, including winemakers, sommeliers, trade, people from the industry and consumers tasted 70 samples of Malbec. It´s the 4th annual edition of this event.
The samples were very representative of the market, because many brands sent samples to be tasted, including Piattelli.
The activity was divided into 4 flights, depending on the price point at market:
1) up to 11USD 2) 12USD to 16USD 3) 17 USD to 21USD 4) 22USD and higher
The dynamic was planned as follows: each assistant tasted 18 wines from each segment or flight, and then decides the 6 winners in order of preference.
We got excellent results with our Grand Reserve Malbecs!
Our Grand Reserve Malbec from Cafayate was #1,
and the Grand Reserve Malbec from Mendoza #3.
Congratulations to all the winemaking team!
