Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Malbec Appellation Gualtallary is produced from 100% Malbec from three different vineyards in Gualtallary, the most calcareous zone within Tupungato in the Uco Valley, a more austere and mineral wine than the Altamira, which feels a little more exuberant. This is restrained and mineral, serious, deep and with imperceptible oak (aged in 3,500-liter foudres). A tour de force Malbec in one of the (if not the) highest potential regions in Argentina. At this quality level this is a real bargain. Drink 2015-2025.
