91pts Tim Atkin
Trivento’s entry-point Malbec is a brilliant wine at the price, especially given the volumes involved. Modern, juicy and intensely perfumed, with lots of bramble and blackberry fruit, some violet top notes, a hint of oak and polished tannins. A great ambassador for the variety.

Iron and grilled meat are heady on the nose, compounded by deep, dark cherrywood. With that intense start, this juicy red speaks of wet earth as the fruit morphs into black cherry within a satin-textured frame. Lightweight and agile, it still holds a concentration of inky fruit and iron minerality.
89pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The largest production from Trivento is the 2018 Reserve Malbec, with some 8.5 million bottles. It's a straightforward, fruit-driven, fresh and drinkable wine that mixes Malbec grapes from Luján de Cuyo, which provides round fruit, and the Valle de Uco, which adds freshness. Only part of the wine has contact with oak, and the wine comes through as fruit forward, very clean and juicy, like biting into a ripe cluster of Malbec fruit, refreshing and very tasty. Delicious textbook Malbec. It's not easy to make so many liters of wine of this quality at an unbeatable price.
Brilliant, intense red with violet and bluish tinges. Aromas of blackberries, cherries and flowers with balanced notes of vanilla and coconut imparted from oak. Well balanced, exhibits sweet tannins and a velvety finish.
