An opulent and complex wine with intense flavours of

ProducerNote
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century old
vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; significant
in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in crafting
wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and microclimates. Led
by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate
pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to
sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their
Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid
clean air, crystal clear water and nutrient rich soil and their award winning wines are
produced with wisdom, precision and care.
Vintage
2019 offered excellent climatic conditions; there were no incidences of frost or hail, so
the vines followed their natural growth progression. The warm, dry weather throughout
the growing period resulted in healthy, vibrant fruit full of varietal characteristics.
Vineyard
As the name alludes, the Trinità is a precise three-grape blend. Trinità's Malbec,
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are grown on 30 to 70 year old vines, located
in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo DOC, Agrelo and the Uco Valley. Cultivated with arid
clean air, crystal clear water, nutrient rich soil and following a meticulous, low volume
process, the vines are carefully managed to produce low yields of concentrated fruit.
Winemaking
Each variety was harvested by hand in cases of 18 kilograms. The grapes were
carefully selected before being destemmed. A proportion of the grapes were
fermented in small tanks of 5,000 litres; a proportion in egg shaped concrete tanks and
the final proportion in barrels. Selected yeasts were added. Fermentation temperatures
were controlled between 25°C and 28°C. Manual punch-downs took place to break
the cap of solids, at the beginning of the fermentation this took place four times per
day, reducing to twice per day. The free-run juice was separated form the pressed
juice. Malolactic conversion was completed in barrels. The wines were matured in
French and American oak barrels for 13 months. The final blend was made prior to
bottling.
TastingNote
Trinità tantalizes the senses with aromatic notes of plum and raspberry, complemented
by hints of coffee, chocolate and spice, which unfold across the palate. A beautifully
balanced wine with ripe tannins, an opulent texture and a long, intense finish.
