Carlos Basso Dos Fincas Malbec

Carlos Basso Dos Fincas Malbec


  • The use of two separate vineyards in Argentina is a traditional practice to safeguard against the threat of hail. For the Basso family, it also allows them to make a more interesting blend by combining the attributes of two distinct microclimates.
  • The dark, powerful fruit from their vineyard in San Carlos, matched with the softer, more nuanced fruit from their vineyard in Tunuyan, makes for a memorable wine.

Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec

Elaboration: Unfined and unfiltered

Tasting Notes: Inky purple in color, with classic Malbec aromatics of dark plum, blackberry, and blueberry. More layers of saturated berry fruit flavors and notes of cocoa fill out the palate, and the wine finishes incredibly soft considering its young age.




Originally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine in Argentina since 1922. In 1935, after owning another winery, Adolfo Basso and his brother Tulio purchased the Santa Ana Winery, eventually turning it into one of Argentina’s largest bodegas.

In 1996, seeking to simplify their lives with small-production winemaking, the family sold the winery and used the profits to purchase and remodel a small winery in Carrodilla, Mendoza. Here, Bodega Amalia was born. Carlos Basso and his son Adolfo manage the day-to-day operation. Of their three labels, Carlos Basso Signature is their premium line, offering small quantities of high-quality wine, which is among the best in Argentina.
