This is a Malbec with an intense ruby red color, showing deep violet hues. It is very expressive on the nose, presenting notes of red fruits, plums, cherries and raspberries. It also has subtle aromas of orange rinds and "jarilla", a typical plant from Mendoza. The entry in the palate is very fresh, with a soft acidity that travels through the mouth. It is a concentrated, juicy and very balanced wine, with a long and pleasant finish. It is ideal to pair with various dishes, from red meats to pasta or grilled vegetables.

The 2020 Malbec Clasico is 75% from Lujan 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.

The back label reads "Malbec specialist". Although there might be many wineries claiming this title, it's true that Altos Las Hormigas has only focused in Malbec since its beginnings in 1995. With a portfolio that includes premium wines, the winery also makes delicious budget-friendly reds, too. This one offers mint, plum and raspberry flavors backed by vigorous acidity and soft tannins.
