About the Producer

Introducing Estela Perinetti and her wonderful wine range known as Las Estelas. Estela was one of the first of South America’s rapidly growing family of women winemakers. She spent more than two decades heading up some of Catena’s most high-profile winery projects and she has been very much in demand as one of Mendoza’s leading consultants since. Las Estelas is her baby!

The story begins in the early 1940s when Estela’s grandfather, Dr. Hector Perinetti, son of an immigrant from Piedmont, purchased a piece of land in Tupungato and planted Semillon. (At that time this area was considered too cold for red grapes!) When aged just two years old his eldest son, Hector Junior, named the vineyard – Finca Mangato.

As these vines became old and increasingly non-viable in the 1990s, Estela and her mother – Estela Armando, also a winemaker! – decided to grub up the Semillon to plant red varietals such as Malbec, the Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, and Merlot and Syrah, and these vines form the basis of Las Estelas today.

Vineyard and Winery

Las Estelas Finca Mangato Alto de las Piedras is a blend of Malbec and Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon grown in the Finca Mangato vineyard, located in the El Peral district of Tupungato. The vines are between an elevation of 1250 metres (4101ft) above sea level. Trellising used is vertical shoot position with double guyot. Drip irrigation from the Rio Las Tunas source. Loamy top soil, with 50 cm of gravel sub soil give this a Bordeaux style charm and elegance.

Fermentation was performed in stainless steel tanks with 100% Malolactic fermentation in tanks. After this the wine was aged for 12 months in 40% new oak barrels, 40% 2nd use barrels and 20% of the wine saw no oak.
