2009 Bodega Renacer Allegrini & Renacer Enamore Mendoza
Producer: Bodega Renacer
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Red Blend
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(a joint project between Renacer and the Amarone producer Allegrini; 60% malbec, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 5% each cabernet franc and bonarda, with the grapes partially dried on the vines via the appassimento process): Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like dark raspberry, cassis, licorice and black pepper on the nose, plus an exotic whiff of fresh apricot. Distinctly sweet (8 g/l r.s.) but with excellent acidity giving the wine a surprising delicacy. Exotic and round, with terrific fruit intensity and a very long, seamless finish featuring sweet tannins. An excellent vintage for this extract-rich wine.
