93+ Points - Wine Advocate:  It's always interesting to compare different vintages of the same wine, in this case the 2019 Malbec with the following two years. It has 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot in the blend and only 13.5% alcohol while retaining very good acidity. The grapes were sourced from Gualtallary and were co-fermented. This is varietal with an herbal twist, serious, subtle and mineral with austerity and elegance, reflecting a very balanced and good year. It's medium-bodied, nicely textured and has a chalky texture from the limestone soils. 35,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2020 after 15 months in ancient oak foudres. Superb!

93 Points - James Suckling:  This has pretty aromas of blackberries, ripe blueberries, dark chocolate, walnuts and crushed stones. Hints of citrus zest. It’s medium-bodied with fine, fleshy tannins. Textured and velvety with a solid core of dark fruit.
