Ninety Plus Cellars
We are taking advantage of the current economic conditions by purchasing high quality and highly rated finished wines direct from wineries at a discount and then passing the savings on to you. Price and availability aren't the only selection criteria. The wines we purchase must have a pedigree of 90 or higher ratings, best buy or gold medal accolades from a respected wine authority or publication. Other companies with a similar concept are usually buying the winery's excess or distressed wine. We are buying a winery's best and most highly rated finished wine, which they would normally sell under their own label. Wineries are willing to work with us because they either produced more than they need or sales have slowed. In return, they are promised complete anonymity, which we take very seriously. The wines of 90+Cellars are great values because we are a virtual winery, we don't own any land or bottling facility. In fact, the source wineries bottle and label our wines for us. We simply search out world class wine, negotiate a great price and then pass the savings on to our customers. Upon release, each 90+Cellars wine is assigned a "Lot" number. A lot is defined as a particular wine from a winery. On successful lots we may purchase the next vintage (if available) if the quality is the same or better. In the end, it is our goal to provide wine lovers with an outstanding bottle of wine at a great price. If you like the idea of fine wine for less money, then give our wines a try!
Carelli wines have achieved international recognition. In Stephen Tanzer`s last report, Carelli Malbec got 92 points. Through this article, readers may know about the successful case of this winery. Bodegas y Viñedos Santos J. Carelli was born in 1943, when Santos J. Carelli bought the winery, which was built in 1895. It comprises a late 19th century building, recently restructured by the famous Bórmida-Yanzón studio, maintaining its original construction and country-house style, with high ceilings, wooden floors and ornaments, and glass skylights, all of which create an intimate environment for visitors. The third generation is currently participating in the project, leading Carelli wines to achieve several international awards. The winery is located in Reducción, in the district of Rivadavia, to the south of Tunuyán River. Carelli has 140 hectares of own vineyards in Rivadavia, San Martín and Junín. In average, Carelli has an annual production of 12,000 hectoliters of own grapes including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés. The results have been very good: Carelli Malbec 2006 received Gold Medals in the contests "Malbec al Mundo 2006" and "Argentina Wine Awards 2009." Moreover, Carelli Gran Malbec 2006 got 92 points in Stephen Tanzer`s tasting "The Best New Wines from Argentina."
