Bressia Profundo 2016

Bressia Profundo is made from 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah

Profundo began during the era of “assemblages” in Argentina; wines from various grapes combined in different proportions, achieving a singular, complete wine with great definition.

The Malbec, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah come from Lujan de Cuyo vineyards 3,100 feet above sea level. Planted 6,500 plants per hectare.

Intense red color with purple tones. Delicate strawberry, blackberry aromas intertwined with chocolate, tobacco, dulce de leche and vanilla nuances. Harmonious and elegant in the mouth with a long finish.


Review:

"A blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, all from Gualtallary, aged for 18 months in American and French oak. The nose was shaped by the cool year, offering pepper, blackberry and hints of mint along with faint aromas of fresh plum and cherry. Smooth and fluid in the mouth, delivering mild tannins and a bold style, this is an elegant wine made in a cosmopolitan style comparable to certain Burgundies. Relaxed and skinny for an Argentine wine; it is the lack of compression that allows the subtle notes to come out. - Joaquín Hidalgo"

- Antonio Galloni's Vinous (October 2020), 93 pts


"The 2016 Profundo is an elegant and especially fresh blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each Merlot and Syrah matured in 225- and 300-liter French and American oak barrels for 12 months. It has berry and herbal flavors and a medium body with fine tannins. 48,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

Bressia Lagrima Canela 2018

Bressia Lagrima Canela is made from 70 % Chardonnay, 30 % Semillon

Barrel fermented for 14 months in new French and American oak

Lagrima Canela means 'cinnamon tears'. This white blend shows an intense greenish-yellow wine with luminous golden highlights. It has fresh, elegant floral aromas, lent to it by its grape varieties, as well as melon, pear and toasty oak. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and outstanding depth and concentration.

Light gold colored with a perfume of candle wax, pear, melon, and toasty oak, on the palate the wine is medium-bodied with well-integrated oak, dry flavors, a creamy texture, and outstanding depth and concentration.

 


"Revolutionary in its day, and still one of Argentina’s leading white blends, Lágrima Canela marries Chardonnay with 30% Semillón, all of it from Gualtallary at 1,200 metres. Fermented separately and aged in new French oak, this is fresh, intense and pale in colour, with subtle camomile and beeswax aromas, spicy oak and layers of citrus and quince fruit. This will age really well too."

Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100 percent Cabernert Sauvignon.

Vineyards are 3,000 feet above sea level, located in Lujan de Cuyo.

"Bressia Monteagrelo combines the soul of each varietal, its intimate relationship with the origin and its deep roots with a unique terroir in the world...Monteagrelo is our family of wines and, as in any family, each one expresses their own identity and varietal personality that makes them unforgettable and unrepeatable." - Walter Bressia

Intense red color with purple tones. Pepper, spice and red fruit aromas on the nose. Well balanced, ripe and harmonious. Full bodied with great structure.

Review:

"Youthful, assertive and intensely oaked, this stylish Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from Agrelo and Gualtallary in the classic Mendoza two-step. Smoky, dense and quite firm, with damson and cassis fruit, it’s a wine with one eye on the future."

- Tim Atkin (Argentina Special Report 2020), 90 pts

Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec 2018

Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec is made from 100 percent Malbec.

Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. No filtration and no fining.  

Bressia Monteagrelo combines the soul of each varietal, its intimate relationship with the origin and its deep roots with a unique terroir in the world...Monteagrelo is our family of wines and, as in any family, each one expresses their own identity and varietal personality that makes them unforgettable and unrepeatable." - Walter Bressia

Monteagrelo Malbec is sourced from vineyards in Tupungato, La Consulta & Agrelo. Planted 6,500 plants per hectare.

Attractive and intense red-colored wine with purple tones. It exhibits ripe red and black fruit aromas, mixed with vanilla, chocolate and coffee nuances. Good concentration, great structure, delicate tannins and a long, harmonious finish.

Review:


"Aromas of ripe blackcurrants, stewed cherries, chocolate, charred bark and dried herbs. It’s full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins. Ripe, rounded finish, yet reserved and tight. Nicely bitter at the end. Drink or hold."

- James Suckling (February 2021), 91 pts

Although this wine was originally 100% from Agrelo, today it also includes grapes from cooler zones in the Uco Valley. This malbec has black fruits and floral touches in a red that’s medium bodied but that also has very potent tannins that prickle on the tongue. An ideal wine for kid goat."

Bressia Monteagrelo Syrah 2016

Bressia Monteagrelo combines the soul of each varietal, its intimate relationship with the origin and its deep roots with a unique terroir in the world...Monteagrelo is our family of wines and, as in any family, each one expresses their own identity and varietal personality that makes them unforgettable and unrepeatable." - Walter Bressia

Intense red color. Spicy aromas, coffee and cinnamon notes. Delicate and well balanced. Good concentration, ample in the mouth, elegant flavors, harmonious and a long finish.

Aged 12 months in new French oak vats


Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Franc 2018

Monteagrelo Cabernet Franc has beautiful ruby red with purple highlights.

It displays aromas of ripe red berries with a nice wood smoke complexity, thanks to the aging in French oak barrels. The wine has a very good structure, but the tannins are still quite round and integrated.

Aged in French and American oak barrels for 15 months. No filtration and no fining.

The finish is very long and will allow the wine to be consumed with food, such as grilled meat or cheese.

Review:

"From the Uco Valley, the 2019 Cabernet Franc Monteagrelo was aged in French vats for 10 months. A light purple in hue, the precise, expressive nose presents notes of green pepper, blackcurrant and ash with hints of jalapeño. Smooth with a broad palate, the flow is corseted a little by the mild freshness, as is the bold finish. A delicate red of a kind you rarely see in a Cabernet Franc. - Joaquín Hidalgo"

Product Description

Bressia Profundo is made from 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah

Intense red color with purple tones. Delicate strawberry, blackberry aromas intertwined with chocolate, tobacco, dulce de leche and vanilla nuances. Harmonious and elegant in the mouth, and a long finish.


Review:

"Profundo was the first wine that Walter Bressia made at his own winery and it’s still one of his best. Combining Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each of Merlot and Syrah, it’s plush and intense with classic Agrelo texture framed by sweet oak and underpinned by acidity. 2019-26"

- Tim Atkin (Argentina Special Report 2018), 93 pts

"The oaky, spicy and smoky 2014 Profundo, a red blend of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each Merlot and Syrah, was first produced in 2001, and it has kept a classical profile, perhaps with a little less influence of the élevage (12 months in oak barrels). The fruit is ripe and comes through as very tasty. 15,000 bottles produced. It as bottled in February 2017. - Luis Gutiérrez"
