The 2015 Amorío is now pure Malbec from two vineyards in Altamira. It fermented with native yeasts in concrete vessels and rolling barrels and matured in 225-liter barriques for 12 months followed by a further 14 months in 3,500-liter oak vats. From this vintage on, it will have the Paraje Altamira appellation. It is quite fresh from the vintage, with low alcohol and an austere palate. It surprised me with its serious personality and the verticality on the palate. 24,000 bottles were filled in August 2017.

Well-sculpted, with pure and concentrated dark cherry, currant and raspberry components that are backed by fresh acidity. Finishes with luscious dark chocolate and spice accents. Drink now through 2022.
