Winemaker Notes

Altocedro Malbec Ano Cero is a La Consulta-terroir driven Malbec that is fresh, fruit-forward, and easy-to-drink.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Lots of dried berries and hints of sultana character with some cocoa powder. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh with lemon rind undertones. Delicious savory wine. Drink or hold.
D 90
Decanter
The purity of fruit shines through and the polished tannins provide a structure that is looser but still evident. Fleshy and voluptuous, clean and fresh with herbs. The pepper finish is more savoury, which adds complexity

Altocedro Learn About Altocedro Winery Video
The winery of Altocedro is located in the growing region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. This is one of the premier Argentine growing zones. Limited production with sustainable growing practices make the Altocedro wines a cult-type wine in Argentina. Winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie focuses on producing terroir-driven wines.

All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand using no machinery in the process. The vines range up to 70 years of age, with only 1,600 plants per acre, and strict harvesting of only 1.2 kg of grapes per vine. The extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago.

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
