The Altos Las Hormigas Estate born when the two friends and business partners Alberto Antonini and Antonio Morescalchi were impressed by Mendoza’s vineyards on their first visit in 1995 where they purchased 206 hectares (530 acres) in the rural township of Lujan de Cuyo. Alberto and Antonio work very closely with Pedro Parra (widely regarded as the South American expert on soil and vineyard mapping) in order to identify the best locations to grow their grapes. Their never-ending experimentation and desire to produce the best wines that Argentina can offer, has made Altos Las Hormigas a Malbec specialist, with a reputation as one of the country’s top producers of this variety.

Deep ruby red in colour with violet hues, the nose is intense and elegant, showing layers of black cherry and plum alongside herbal notes of eucalyptus and a touch of minerality. On the palate it is juicy and fresh with fine tannins providing structure. A graceful, deep and structured wine with considerable length.
