Outstanding scores for Trivento in the publication of Robert Parker
The prestigious magazine of the critic Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, published a detailed report on Argentina in its October edition. The wines of Bodega Trivento, the Concha y Toro Group subsidiary in Argentina, caused surprises with its high scores in the report of Neal Martin, a journalist specializing in rating the region’s wines.
The iconic Malbec Eolo 2008 obtained 95 points, standing out for being the second highest score that the critic granted to an Argentine Malbec. The iconic Eolo is the ambitious oenological project of the Bodega and has as its co-winemaker the renown Concha y Toro professional, Enrique Tirado, also in charge of Don Melchor. According to Neal Martin, Eolo is a “…Malbec of undeniable beauty and prepared with art and precision. Marvellous”.
For its part, Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec 2008 vintage received 94 points, being the highest score for a Malbec in the attractive US$ 20-40 price segment. Trivento Golden Reserve Syrah 2010 obtained 93 points, the highest score for this variety in the complete report on Argentine wines, while Amado Sur 2010, the innovative blend of Malbec, Syrah and Bonarda, consolidated its style and quality in receiving 90 points.
“The exceptional scores of the Trivento wines are the fruit of the comprehensive program of terroir wines that Bodega Trivento is carrying out, and reflect the strategy and our commitment with the production of superior-quality wines in Argentina”, said Eduardo Guilisasti, CEO of Viña Concha y Toro. The general appreciation of the critic Neil Martin of the Trivento wines is summed up in a simple and expressive phrase: “…beautifully balanced, refined and precise: showing the intensity of the fruit more than its power…”.
