Vineyard
The grapes come from Luján de Cuyo vineyards. The region has a semi-desert climate with hot days and cool nights. Fresh
soils are chosen, with good water drainage and a fine sand-silt texture. These soils allow a deep development of the roots,
since their water retention capacity is excellent for the expansion of the roots and gives the plants a better ability to resist
the heat waves, which are common during the summer in Mendoza. In this climate, we avoid soils with abundant surface
gravels, which increase the heating effect around the vine and could shorten the ripening season.
Winemaking
100% hand-picked Malbec grapes. After a careful, double sorting process, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented with
4indigenous yeasts to express the vineyard from which they come. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks
separated between 24-28 ° C for 10 days. Each tub is tasted three times a day to determine what is needed. The wine is
then aged for a minimum of 9 months in concrete tanks. No aging in oak.

Altos Las Hormigas

Altos Las Hormigas was founded in Mendoza, in 1995, by the oenologist Alberto Antonini and the entrepreneur Antonio Morescalchi to which Attilio Pagli and Carlos Vazquez later joined. The property extends to the Mendoza region and especially to the two sub-areas of Luján de Cuyo and Maipú, where the first Altos Las Hormigas vineyards were planted in 1996. Currently the agronomic management of the land follows the dictates of biodynamic cultivation, a choice chosen to protect the natural heritage of the region whose particular beauty is also due to the fact that it is located at the foot of the Aconcagua, an Andean mountain, to the east of which the portion overlooks wider than the property. The nature of the soils is clay-limestone with alluvial sedimentations and in some areas it has sand and pebbles. The climate of the region is characterized by dry periods and a showy thermal alternation: very hot days and cold nights. Currently the company covers an area of ​​206 hectares of which, the vineyards, are 40 planted in Malbec and 6 in Bonarda. The harvest takes place manually and takes place in February and March. Altos Las Hormigas wines are the result of few interventions in the cellar, aimed at enhancing the incredible heritage of Malbec vinified in purity.
