From world renowned winemaker and wine-consultant Alberto Antonini (former head winemaker at Antinori) comes Altos las Hormigas. A project with a focused vision to express the varying terroirs of Mendoza through the Malbec grape.
The 2018 vintage – marked by the always present sun of Mendoza – shows in the concentrated and lively color of this wine: a bright violet red. On the nose, the variety fully unfolds, with its characteristic notes of fresh red plums, but also displaying aromas of strawberries and a subtle note of peppermint. The palate presents great intensity, character and a silky texture, highlighted by juicy red fruit flavors with an interesting note of pepper. This is a pleasure wine that lingers in the mouth.
