This 100% Malbec is hand-harvested from a single vineyard in the Gualtallary sub-region of the Uco Valley. The vineyard was planted in 2008 and is situated at 4,600 feet above sea level. The wine is aged in amphora for 30 days, then in 3-6 year old barrels for 18 months.
Full-bodied and deep in color, this is a Malbec of the mountains: ripe fruit, but with the structure to pair well with heartier foods: meaty stews with herbs and tomatoes would be ideal.
The Michelini brothers, also winemakers at Mendoza’s renowned Zorzal and Passionate wineries, are creating their first biodynamic wines under the Calcareo and SuperUco labels. The outdoor winery consists of egg-shaped concrete amphoras in The Vines of Mendoza’s Winemaker’s Village project.
This boutique, biodynamic project is the first of its kind in Mendoza with very limited production of top quality, terroir driven wines.
