Balanced acid and tannin with a fresh finish make this wine ready to enjoy now. Age up to five years, serve at 64 degrees F.

100% Malbec. Altos Las Hormigas was founded in 1995 by a consortium of prominent Italian winemakers, including Alberto Antonini of Antinori and Antonio Morescalchi. When the vineyards were planted in 1996 workers faced a stiff altercation with the local ant colonies. The ants loved to feed on the tender sprouts of their newly-planted young vines, often reducing months of man labor to nothing, all in a single night. The workers refused to poison the ants and started looking for natural ways to deflect their attention. During this time the workers commented that the ants were the "real" owners of the place and seemed to cover enormous ground and accomplish great tasks despite their miniscule size. In Argentina there is a saying: "un trabajo de hormigas" or "a job for ants" which describes a humble, patient, and dedicated work.
