Tempranillo in Mendoza; it justs works. In fact, better than ever. See? Technological upgrades DO NOT necessarily have to come with, how should we say, le spoof? I love the varietal expression that comes with this one, so you can count on elegance, balance and that overall lack of creepy oak-fruit "meant to please foreigners" aspect that keeps so many wine-snobs justifying their lack of forays into the Nuevo Mundo. There is acidity here folks! The balance is real, not confect, so I'm pleased. No, Trivento is not exactly a small, artisanal outfit. That doesn't break any rules that I may be aware of, as the wine speaks for itself. This one is a simple, but straightforward and lovely example of what I look for in a New World benchmark style, in terms of a classic European variety...1) Tempranillo's rich, red fruit is discernible, so the varietal expression is there, uncloyed by oak and unrefined tannins; and 2 It's not an imitation of a young Rioja or Duero powerhouse, but a unique voice for Mendoza's expression of Tempranillo. Rich strawberry, raspberry (superlative acidity!), rustic spice and depth. A post explaining the role of Tempranillo in the Americas.... http://enotheque.blogspot.com/2008/04/great-question-from-reader-and-why.html Salud!
