2017 Bodegas Caro Amancaya
91 points: Wine Advocate
Approximately half of the volume of the 2017 Amancay amatured in oak barrels, and the other half was kept in concrete vats for one year. This comes from vineyards in Altamira, and the barrels used for the élevage are mostly in barriques produced by Lafite that have a very light toast, with the idea to preserve the aromatics of the wine and let it breath and provide structure in the élevage without interfering with the aromas. The oak is very nicely integrated and folded into the fruit, and the wine comes through as quite pure and fruit driven, with moderate ripeness and a harmonious palate. This was born as the classical second wine in a Bordeaux sense. This wine is sold in Argentina as Petit Caro. 350,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.
2016 Bodegas Caro Caro
92 points: James Suckling
A linear and firm red with silky tannins, blackberry, cedar and coffee bean aromas and flavors. Full body, tight and refined. Pretty finish. Drink now or hold.
