Altos Las Hormigas was founded by ‘youthful interlopers’ who wanted to create a more elegant style of Malbec. They are now one of Argentina’s leading producers of this ever popular red. Altamira Malbec is a fresh, delicate wine made from grapes that have been meticulously selected, fermented for fifteen days and aged in untoasted foudres for eighteen months.
When the Tuscan Alberto Antonini visited Mendoza in 1995 he was so impressed he persuaded a few friends to help him buy a 216 hectare estate. The friends work closely with a South American soil specialist to identify the best areas to grow their vines, and have identified some outstanding sites. The vineyard is run biodynamically, to ensure that the wines stay true to their place of origin.
