Dark ruby red in colour, The bouquet shows dusty cherry and berry aromas are earthy and highly natural. A full, ripe palate offers a striking authority and a good balance, elegant, while this tastes of clean black fruits prior to a finish with dry tannins. This is fresh and exact, with little of the herbal character that often comes through on the finish.

Altaluvia is the faithful expression of the best of Valle de Uco, Altura and Gualtallary. Its grape is different since its location is unique. So Altaluvia is magnificent, inside, from the depths of our soil and outside, to the top of its vineyards. This district in Tupungato, in the Uco Valley, is the region of Mendoza with the highest vineyards. At 1,350 meters above sea level, the composition of its poor soils, its cool days and cold nights make this region an area of excellence. A magnificent region due to its history, which is born from a flaw in nature, raising a hill to the west of our vineyard. This hill diverted a river, which helped preserve the sector from alluvium and over time, it became a privileged area to create varietals of excellence.
