"Big, rich and powerfully spiced, with loads of roasted dark plum, dark cherry and blackberry tart flavors, flanked by intense notes of tapenade and grilled toast. Christmas pudding and chocolate mousse elements flood the unctuous finish, showing hints of espresso. Drink now through 2027. 8,800 cases made, 100 cases imported. -KM"

Product Description:

"Deep ruby-colored wine with complex aromas reminiscent of black fruits, such as blackberries, spices and chocolate. In the mouth, elegant and open with silky tannins and long intense persistency. It is recommended to decant it before drinking it cold, between 16ºC and 18ºC. Cellar time: over 10 years.

Alto is our icon wine. Its first vintage, in 1998, gave rise to Alta Vista Project. Nowadays, it is considered a benchmark in Argentinean production.

Alto is the result of the efforts of each of the workers of the winery because of the thorough care in each stage of its elaboration process. It is the product that involves the largest number of actors, from the vineyard to the winemaking.

Alto is marked by the identity and the soul of all the people involved in its production. For this reason it carries the DNA of our winery." - Winery
