Winemaker Notes

After 6 years of organic farming, Altos las Hormigas Bonarda vineyard is finding its balance. The natural environment and interaction with other species (grass, herbs, etc.), the come-back of life in the soil and the evidence of deeper roots all contribute to a very balanced wine. Notes of crunchy red fruits, fresh summer cherry tomatoes and a very distinctive note of licorice, make this a one of-a-kind red wine that combines pleasure with freshness and intensity, in a very special way for a Bonarda.

Ideal to pair with pasta Pomodoro dishes, pizza and light meats.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Colonia Las Liebres is now an organic (certified) range, of which the classical 2019 Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clásica comes from a warm year. Almost six hectares were parral planted in 2007 and were the first to be certified organic. The wine keeps the freshness and has unusual floral and elegant aromas. It's 10% carbonic maceration in stainless steel, and the aging was in concrete. It's always around 13% alcohol. Over the years, this range has become less extractive and ripe. Still unbottled, it becomes more elegant with time in the glass. Range: 90-91 points

Altos las Hormigas, South America
Altos las Hormigas The Altos las Hormigas Team Winery Image

In 1995 Alberto Antonini, a well-known Tuscan winemaker, and Antonio Morescalchi, a young entrepreneur, took a trip to visit the burgeoning wine areas of South America. It only took one stop to find what they were looking for. They were immediately impressed by the vineyards thriving in the high altitude and dry climate of Mendoza, and were captivated by the whispered traditions and blend of cultures.

They returned to Tuscany powerfully impressed not only by the region, but also by the unexplored potential of Malbec, a grape that had a strong local tradition but was largely ignored and misunderstood. While the rest of the wine world saw Mendoza struggling to shed its bulk wine image, the two young Italians saw Mendoza as a place where traditional viticultural values and unblemished land could be reinvigorated with a modern winemaking approach and international experience. Instead of planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as many others were doing during the 1990s, the team decided to invest their confidence in Malbec. Today, Malbec is the varietal for which Argentina is best known.

Against all odds they cemented their vision to become Terroir Specialists Shortly after, two friends and business partners, also enthused by the idea, joined the venture: Attilio Pagli, a renowned Tuscan winemaker with two 100 point-scoring wines in his personal record and Carlos Vazquez, an Argentine Agronomist, who work for 20 years with the early Catena group, planting new varieties, developing previously unknown vineyard sites and contributing greatly to the qualitative change of Argentine viticulture early on.
