Reception: direct on double sorting table. Fermentation: 100% native yeast in small concrete tanks at 25C during approximately 10 days. No skin maceration and malolactic fermentation complete after the alcoholic fermentation.

The winery and vineyards of Altocedro are located in the premier region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroir-driven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand. Fermentation occurs either in small cement tanks or in barrels, and the extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine. 'Altocedro represents real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel.' -Wine Spectator
