Roberto Cipresso, partner and winemaker of Achaval-Ferrer. Roberto is considered on of the most talented young Italian enologists by the specialized press. Primary fermentation was performed in small tanks. The wines were then pressed and blended Quimera underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, 40% new and 60% one year old.
“The 2010 Quimera is a blend of 27% Malbec and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon alongside Petit Verdot and Merlot, raised in 40% French new oak for 14 months, the remainder one year old. It has a complex, almost “mulchy” bouquet: one that evokes undergrowth and tertiary aromas that are well-defined and cerebral. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chewy tannins surrounding a core of blackberry laced with licorice and a hint of star anise. The finish is focused and taut, bestowed with an extremely fresh citric finish. Old World meets New – with style. Drink 2014-2022. ” Wine Advocate #203 91 Points!
