Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Clásico

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 66915

RP90+90+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The red 2020 Malbec Clásico was produced with 80% grapes from Luján de Cuyo and 20% grapes from Valle de Uco, mostly their own grapes, all in stainless steel and vinified by plot with their native yeasts. It matured in concrete for nine months. It’s ripe without excess and develops a full array of aromas and flavors but keeping 13.5% alcohol, very fresh for the warm year. It’s juicy, complex beyond fruit, a little herbal, medium-bodied and with very fine tannins. It’s clean, expressive and open, a wine that has to be approachable from when you pull the cork. They are working to increase the drinkability, which will be seen more and more in the following years. This represents the largest part of their production with some 500,000 bottles. There are different bottlings. (Luis Gutiérrez)

The 2020 Malbec Clásico is 75% from Luján de Cuyo and 25% from the Uco Valley. A mild purple hue. Considering the year, the nose presents notes of quite fresh plum with hints of herbs, syrup and floral aromas. In the mouth, it has good volume, firm, grippy tannins and an expansive flow before the ripe finish. (Joaquín Hidalgo)

Nice sour cherries with a streak of white pepper and violets. Medium-bodied, but fleshy. Ripe, almost creamy tannins extend to the finish, but are still juicy and vibrant. Not complex, but so balanced and easy to drink. Drink now.

The 2021 Pizzella Malbec is ripe without excess and shows more black than red fruit, and it’s juicy and velvety, dense and with fine tannins. It has a touch of vanilla that makes it very attractive and pleasant. (Luis Gutiérrez)
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2023
Aromatic herbs blend with berries on the inviting nose. The same notes repeat on the palate of this medium-bodied red. The grapes are sourced from Altamira in Uco Valley giving this wine bright acidity and a mineral texture. (Jesica Vargas)
VN8888 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2022
The 2021 Malbec La Posta Pizzella from Tupungato, Uco Valley was 50% aged in used barrels. Purple in hue. The nose presents notes of plum, hints of herbs and aromas from the aging process. Offering good value for money, it’s indulgent and expansive in the mouth with gentle tannins, coming out sweeter than in previous years. (Joaquín Hidalgo)

RP91+91+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The 2019 Malbec Terroir Valle de Uco was produced with grapes from La Consulta and Tupungato on stony soils fermented by plot with indigenous yeasts and matured mostly in concrete (75%) with a part in 3,500-liter oak foudres for 18 months. It has moderate 13% alcohol and a combination of power, elegance and great freshness, reflecting a great vintage. It’s articulate and has complexity, and it’s open and talks to you with a wide palette of aromas and flavors. It’s very fine and elegant and tastes like a much more expensive wine with the freshness from the vintage and the cooler place. It has to be one of the finest vintages of this bottling and a great value too. 28,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 06/20
Dark and rich, this blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc packs in fruit and spice. It’s buoyant and lively, ripe yet cool, with an evergreen note perking up the black-raspberry fruit; black-pepper spice gives it extra lift and drive.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2020
Ripe berry, cherry and plum aromas offer an enticing hint of sweet cookie dough. There’s nothing shy about the palate, which hammers at first before calming. Blackberry, savory notes and chocolaty oak flavors offset the wine’s natural piercing intensity. This structured blend is Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and a little bit of Cab Franc; drink through 2023.
