Winemaker's Notes

This is an exceptional single-vineyard Malbec varietal. In the glass I see a very deep color, almost black, dense and well defined, with purple overtones. It has aromas of mature fruit in optimal balance with the sweet tannins of the oak, and notes of mint and chocolate. True to itself, again this year Altamira shows its unique "signature". In the mouth I feel a enveloping caress, then a round sensation, a fascinating mixture of fruit confection made lighter by a balsamic note. The finish is extremely long and mineral.
