"A juicy and rich wine with lots of dried fruit and meat. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Delicious to drink now but has the stuffing to age." James Suckling
Altocedro is located in the growing region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Located at the foothills of the Andes at 3700 feet, La Consulta is one of the premier wine producing zones in Argentina and the world. Limited production with sustainable growing practices makes Altocedro a cult-type wine in Argentina. Winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie focuses on producing terroir-driven wines. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand using no machinery in the process. The vines range up to 100 years of age, with only 1,600 plants per acre, and strict harvesting of only 1.2 kg grapes per vine.
