The Malbec Finca La Escuela is a single vineyard wine from a young vineyard in Altamira planted by Alejandro about ten years ago at high density (7,000 plants per hectare) It feels a little backward and shy, with notes of ripe cherries and plums, black pepper and licorice along with good intensity and elegance. With time, it develops strong aromas of balsamic, mint and eucalyptus. The palate is medium-bodied, with sweet, round tannins, clean flavours and good balance and persistence, ending with a licorice note.
TintoNegro, meaning “black wine” in Spanish, is meant to celebrate the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish color, Malbec is definitely a Tinto Negro.
TintoNegro wines are meant to reflect the heart and soul of Malbec in Mendoza. The portfolio explores the terroirs of Mendoza where Malbec does best, gradually isolating unique vineyard sites and winemaking techniques which can showcase the heights of concentration and complexity to which Malbec can aspire.
TintoNegro was born of the long time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years.
