The wine

Malpuesto began life with the 2005 vintage and it’s only produced when the quality of the grape harvest allows its high standard to be maintained. Without detracting at all from the merits of the winery’s second wine (Orben), it’s clear that Malpuesto, the limited production red, is that reigns supreme in the house.

What does this wine taste like?

Malpuesto is an extremely powerful wine, fruit-driven and balanced, revealing hints of blueberries, thicket and liquorice and with perfectly integrated sweet tannins.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The grossly oversize and overweight bottle of the 2018 Malpuesto was a good indication of the large wine inside. It seems like it had a lighter extraction and oaking than in the past, and it's still quite ripe and showy, with waves of ripe fruit and plenty of tannins. For fans of the style; perhaps for the rest, just forget it in the cellar and hope for good integration and polishing of the components with time in bottle. They reduced the time in barrel to 11 months, but they still used 100% new barrels. 4,876 bottles, 100 magnums and 25 double magnums were filled in July 2020.
