We have tasted this wine many times over the years and this is the best vintage yet. We knew after the first sip and studying the dark ruby color that this was the richest wine produced. Altos de las Hormigas make Colonia Las Liebres (Colony of Hares) from Argentina. We have featured and continue to sell the Malbec and a small allocation of the Reserve Malbec. Dr Alberto Antonini and his partners from Antinori vineyards came from Italy to Argentina, so it is only fitting that they are producing a wine that also originated in Italy. This ripe fresh wine is similar to a Barbera with bright berry fruit and a lemony finish. We opened this wine on a Wednesday and it was still vibrant four days later. Try this wine with casual foods like pizza and you will be pleased with the results. At this price, you should buy it by the case.
Producer
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.
