Altos Las Hormigas exclusively produces Malbec in Argentina. Their own vineyards are located in Lujan de Cuyo, on a gentle slope at about 800 meters above sea level, facing the Andes range in the East. The estate also buys grapes from neighboring vineyards. The project itself is the combined effort of: Alberto Antonini, a well known Tuscan winemaker; Antonio Morescalchi, a young entrepreneur; Attilio Pagli, another well known Tuscan winemaker; Marco de Grazia, a well known negotiant of fine Italian wines; Alan Scerbanenko, an Italo-Swiss management counselor; and last, but not least, Antonio Terni, who produces top quality wines in the Marche region of Italy. Look for violets, spices, blueberries and black cherries in the nose with a medium-bodied style, creamy texture, and layers of blue and black fruits on the palate. Excellent value here.
