Full-bodied and dark-fruited Malbec from its adopted home of Argentina. The grapes are grown in the Uco Valley, southwest of Mendoza. The farming is organic and biodynamic. The grapes are hand picked and not destemmed. Fermentation and aging are done in concrete eggs with native yeasts.
From the mouth of the importer (Ripe Wine Imports):
"Perhaps the most radical of Argentina’s winemakers, Matias Michelini was fondly known as the "green Michelini" for many years and his colourful winemaking still makes him the rebel of the Argentine wine scene. Pioneering a lean style of wine with often electric acidity, Michelini has been at the forefront of Uco Valley winemaking and in particular Gualtallary’s development over the last decade. A firm believer in biodynamic viticulture, Mathias' wines very much start in the vineyard and almost invariably end in concrete."
