My top three

Gen del Alma, Crua Chan Gualta Mal­bec, Gual­tal­lary 2016

I’m a big fan of the Miche­lini broth­ers. This wine sets the bench­mark for the pu­rity of fruit and po­ten­tial of this place. These guys clearly go straight to the core of what Gual­tal­lary means. Bril­liant wine. 97 Drink 2017-2024

Su­sana Balbo, Sig­na­ture Mal­bec, Al­tamira 2015

From a dif­fi­cult vin­tage. Su­sana has been mov­ing much of her fan­tas­tic port­fo­lio to the Uco Val­ley in re­cent years. And once again, she uses her del­i­cate hand to tease out those el­e­ments that de­fine Al­tamira. Minty fresh, with a dis­tinct medic­i­nal char­ac­ter. Pure red fruits with a min­eral and chalky mouth­feel. 97 Drink 2017-2025

Zuc­cardi, Polí­gonos, Al­tamira 2015

I love this se­ries of wines. Cre­ated to show the es­sen­tial el­e­ments of ter­roir in the Uco Val­ley, it clearly works here. A pure and clear in­ter­pre­ta­tion of all that’s great about Al­tamira. 97 Drink 2017-2027
