Calchaqui Valley, Salta, Argentina
This Malbec is the symbol of all high altitude Malbec: elegance and freshness due to the wide thermal amplitude and intensity and concentration of tannins thanks to the higher exposure to sunlight. This wine is dark purple with bright edges, it has a spicy and floral nose, with intense black fruit aroma. Elegant and complex, the palate is very fresh, with good volume.
92 Points, James Suckling
Deep, demanding nose, discreetly effusing iodine, wet stones, violets and black spices, as well as blackberries and blue fruit. Surprisingly approachable on the entry of the palate, followed by an immense tannin framework and dense flavors. Lots of concentration with a mineral finish. Fruit sourced from Finca el Arenal (2600m). Drinkable now, but better after 2022.
