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.

Their bread-and-butter red 2019 Malbec Clásico wants to show, through an early harvest and an élevage without oak, that not all Malbec from Mendoza is jammy. 2019 was much warmer than 2018, and the grapes developed full flavors like they haven't seen for years. It's mostly grapes from Luján de Cuyo and a small percentage from the Valle de Uco, mostly from their estate vineyards, from parts with limestone in the soils. The hand-harvested grapes fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts, and the wine matured in concrete vats for nine months. It's floral and expressive, clean and varietal, juicy, fruit-driven and very easy to drink. 645,000 bottles produced. They bottled a first lot in October 2020, and the rest will be bottled in the following months.
