Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
A malbec with firm and silky tannins that are dry at the same time emphasizing the dark fruit and hints of fresh herbs. Medium body, bright and delicious.
Tim Atkin
A textbook, modern style Gualtallary Malbec from Rutini’s own vineyards, this is richly, nostril-twitchingly aromatic, with violet and rosemary scents, sweet oak, layered tannins and plush blueberry and black cherry fruit.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Encuentro range was created by two winemakers, Mariano di Paola and Californian Paul Hobbs, and named for their encounter. This range contains various varietals and blends, including the 2016 Encuentro Malbec. The wines don't usually specify origin on their labels, even though this one was produced with grapes from Gualtallary. It fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for nine months. It is a little closed, not very expressive and is even a little reduced. It slowly opens up and reveals floral and fresh aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannins and very good balance.
